1/9/2011 4:38 PM Please let me know if you can identify the army uniform in the picture. My grandfather, Munio HEIMBERGER (not pictured), from Vienna, served as a medic in the Russian Army during WWII. He fled Vienna to Brno, Czechoslovakia, then fled to Russia when the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia. He ended up in Tashkent, joined the Red Army, and was involved in the battle of Stalingrad. His unit was in Lvov (Lemberg) in April-May 1945. View the post with its 3 responses

I think this postcard was written to my great grandmother Gite Mine Levin in exile in Ludza during world war 1.

1/9/2011 4:34 PM Can anyone help translate this card.

I think it was sent by a relative of my grandfathers family (Shochet) to my great grandmother in exile in Ludza during world war 1.

Any information even where the post mark is from would be much appreciated.

On the front is a picture of a bridge with some Russian words underneath. I will post it as well.

Thanks

Michael

17667 Interpretation

1/9/2011 4:33 PM This is Mike Belinsky paying for steamship tickets for two of his cousins, Sossie (Sophie) Schochetman and her older sister Udel (Ida). Can people help me interpret the Passenger's Address in the far right column? I know the Schochetmans were from Odessa, but I've never been able to find their street address, and I'm hoping this bank ledger will help answer the question.

17665 Photo Identification

1/9/2011 4:32 PM My family background has got lost in time. This crest image is from our family tree, and I am curious about the three 6 sided stars meaings in its construction framework. We left Bremen Germany for Australia in 1848, and family gossip had it that it was over some Jewish matter. APart from that we only have the crest.

Is it related to messanic Judaism?

17666 Interpretation

1/9/2011 4:32 PM Can anyone help me understand the Passenger's Address in the far right column? This is a ticket bought by Sam Schoichetman for his younger sister Sore and infant brother Morris. I know the family was from Odessa, but have never been able to find a street address. I am hoping this note will help me figure out where the family lived in Odessa. The next ledger image provides a more detailed address for more Schochetman siblings. View the post with its 1 response
