7/20/2011 7:38 PM Please help me decipher Father's name on Bernhardt Blumenthal's death certificate. His marriage certificate has his father as "Asher" Blumenthal. This does not say Asher. Can anyone read it? I am curious if he went by another name or if Asher was incorrect. I don't know if it is "SPIR?" "H_IRS" "HIRSH?" "ISIRS"

My email is mollyblum@msn.com

19608 Translation - Yiddish

7/20/2011 7:37 PM I would love to have a translation of this letter.

Shoshana and my father in law were first cousins and the only survivors of the Shoah from their two families. I have heard they had a relative (maybe an uncle) that survived too. Is he at all referenced? Also, knowing Shoshana's parents names would be quite helpful -- but doubtful it would be in this letter.

7/20/2011 7:36 PM I am trying to determine the original name of my grandfather. In Canada he called himself Paul Lesk. The image is of another page in his passport. I am also interested in the two dates on this page. One the issuing date and other the departure date. Is there any reference to city of departure.

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.
