25341 Photo Identification

12/23/2012 4:41 PM Hello!
I wish to know where was this photo taken?
I know the adult woman in the center is Leiba Katzovich who lived in Belarus till the 1920s.
After that she was in Havana,Cuba.
The other family members lived in Kishinev,Besserabia untill world war II.
Does anyone can guess from the background or the style of the clothes where was this photo pictured?
Thank you from advance!

Sincerely:Ofir Azrilovici

25323 Interpretation

12/23/2012 4:39 PM The New York arrival record (31 Dec. 1906, SS Caronia) of Moschek MIRKOWITZ, 18, and his brother Hirsch, 15, shows them joining a friend named LEWIN at 719 ??? Street, Philadelphia. I can't decipher the street name (next to last line) and hope that someone can help. Thank you.

Note: In 1914, the Philadelphia manifest of Chawe and Schleime "MILKOWITZ" (siblings of Moschek and Hirsch) lists as their destination "uncle Berl LEWIN, 5523 N. 5th Street Philadelphia" -- perhaps the same person as the "friend" in 1906.

25318 Translation - German

12/23/2012 4:38 PM This is my Abraham Schmidt's death certificate from 1912 in Vienna. He was from Rozwadow, Galizia.
I would like to know what the two words after his name are(should be occupation, I think)as well as the words between the two cities of Jarocin and Rozwadow..
Thanks

12/23/2012 4:38 PM This is an article written by my great-grandfather, Rabbi Joseph Zeisler, in March 1885, for the publication Die Deborah, a German language newspaper. I would like to have it translated as best as possible. I have a better/higher resolution copy that I can send if necessary. I have no idea what the article is about. Thanks!

25317 Translation - Russian

12/23/2012 4:37 PM This is a page from Lithuania death records, 1907. I am interested in the entry for the fourth person down on the page, identified as "male 4": David Itsko Kaplan. I would appreciate a complete translation of that entry. Together with this image, I have up-loaded a cropped image of the portion of this page containing only the entry for David Itsko Kaplan.
Thank you.
