2/2/2011 4:15 PM This is Roza Peraile Vollman of Capresti, writing in German, to her uncle and aunt and cousins, who now live in America. Her uncle, Abram Spiwak (who was using his American name, William, at this point) visited Romania for three months in 1929, looking for members of his family who did not emigrate. His daughter Lil traveled with him. Another Genner saw my previous posting and wrote to ask if this woman migh be the same as the Roza Vollman who was her mother's cousin, and who wrote in 1948 explaining how she survived the war and evaded the Nazis. The back of this card follows, and then the other Roza's three page letter in German, which we need translated, word by word, to English in order to see if we have a connection.

2/2/2011 4:15 PM Page on of a three page letter.
I need a full translation of this three page letter from German to English. This is Roza Wohlman / Vollman's letter to her cousin, explaining how she hid from the Nazis and survived the war. It belongs to a Genner (daughter of the letter's recipient) who saw my earlier posting on Roza Vollman, a niece of Abram and Sophie Spiwak's, who lived in Capresti, Romania in 1929. The family never heard from this Roza again. In order to figure out if there is any connection between these two women or their families, we need a translation of the letter.

2/2/2011 4:15 PM Page 3 of Roza's letter. It's particularly important for us to understand what she is saying about her name, and to be able to decipher her address, in case we can track her that way. View the post with its 2 responses

2/2/2011 4:07 PM I would like to know the surname of the mother on this death certificate. It is the death certificate of Regina Handgriff who died in 1910 in Philadelphia. The certificate indicates that she was born in Austria; but the family was originally from Tarnow, Poland.
I have tried looking for any name resembling Beh*n*y in the Tarnow records without success. Any suggestions as to what the name might be would be greatly appreciated!
