19148 Do you recognize?

6/12/2011 3:50 PM Does anyone recognize these people?

Top left: Srul/Israel Shaposhnik, 1909-1940
Top right: Itzhak Shaposhnik, 1923-1941
Bottom left: Ruvin Shaposhnik, 1881-1929
Bottom right: Khava Leya Shaposhnik, 1884-1941

Ruvin and Chava Shaposhnik were the parents of Gershon, Israel and Itzhak Shaposhnik of Orgeyev, Bessarabia, and the grandparents of Arieh Shafrir, of Israel. Arieh knows his father Gershon's story, (Gershon emigrated to then Palestine in October 1935, married and lived in Haifa until his death in 1998. His sister Khaya married Avraham Finkelstein of Orgeyev and they emigrated to Palestine too. Arieh is searching for information and possible relatives for his extended family.

As their name suggests, they were hat makers. Since they appear in photos of the hat makers association in the Yizkor book for Orgeyev with members of the Shaposhnik family I am searching, we are posting this query jointly.

19225 Photo Identification

6/8/2011 6:08 PM My family was always under the impression that this is a picture of our grandfather, Jozef Pawlowski, (born in Plock, in 1901) as a mounted soldier in the Polish Army during WW1. I have my doubts...I have not been able to identify the uniform through any online sources. Does anyone recognize the uniform and to which army he belonged and the date?

19226 Interpretation

6/8/2011 6:08 PM This stamp was taken from the back of what looks like a photo-studio portrait of a Viennese child. The boy was about 8 - 10 years old, son of a Jewish man and a Christian woman, baptized 3 days after the Anschluss. The boy and his brother were eventually taken from their foster parents to the Jewish orphan home in Vienna, where they spent all the war years under the guidance of Hugo Bondi. At a later date the boy was issued a "Jude" card. Brother's similar picture has no such stamp on it. At the person's request, I am not posting his picture or his brother's. Hints to the name, in handwriting, were removed form the image.

Would appreciate interpretation of the stamp both the text, which I can understand in part, and why and by whom - it was put on the picture.

19222 Translation - Hebrew

6/8/2011 6:07 PM I would greatly appreciate help in translating the text on a monument from Hebrew to English. The monument is from a photograph I believe was taken in Lida ca 1934 at the gravesite of Chaim-Leib Kalmanowicz and Zisle (Boyarski) Kalmanowicz. Chaim-Leib's father's given name was BereYoshe (Ber) and Zisle's father's given name was Shlioma.

I have included 2 versions of the sign, as well as a copy of the original photo. The original photo is ViewMate 19223. Thank you.

19224 Translation - German

6/8/2011 6:07 PM I am trying to figure out the spelling of my ggggm's first name. You will find it in the second line (entry "12"), third column over, of this marriage record from 1866 in Dravetz, Kingdom of Hungary (now Slovakia). In the parents of the groom box, you will find written "Israel, Rosi(?) Peterfreund." I believe this is a German version of a possible nickname for her. In other records we know her as Theresia or Regina. Israel is her husband. I think it is Rosi or Roszi or Rozi. It's the third letter I'm having trouble with, which seems to be the big "s" of old German script or a combination of the big "s" and little "s" or "z".
This letter also seems to be used one row up, one column over in the name "Betty Rosenburg(?)" and three columns over in the name "Josef(?) Engel."
Thanks for the help,
Peter
