19147 Do you recognize?

5/29/2011 4:10 PM Does anyone recognize these people? Ruvin and Chava Shaposhnik were the parents of Gershon Shaposhnik of Orgeyev, Bessarabia, and the grandparents of Arieh Shafrir. Israel and Itzhak were Gershon's brothers. View the post, there are no responses
19142 Translation - Russian

5/29/2011 4:09 PM This is a picture of a folded letter. The letter was sent to my great-grandmother from her brother-in-law, during World War II.
I can read Russian, so I know what the letter says and the front of the letter.
The problem I have is with the different stamps and such.
What kind of information can I get out of the stamps/dates/codes/numbers, on this letter?

Thank you so much!
Julia

5/29/2011 4:09 PM The back of David Spivak's birth certificate.

If anyone can translate the stamps and seals, that'd be great, too.

5/29/2011 4:09 PM I would like a translation of this birth certificate for David Spivak, born in Mendoza, Argentina in 1921. His parents were Rachmiel Spiwak and Fanny Kalik Spiwak of Orgeyev, Bessarabia. Their two older sons were born in Russia; Schloime/Solomon in Kishinev in 1901 and Baruch/ Benito in Orgyeve in 1904. I am especially interested in knowing all the names. View the post with its 2 responses

5/29/2011 4:09 PM I need a translation of this entire page from the Capresti Yizkor book. The young man is David Wolman. I am wondering if he is related to Leizer, Sore, Yakov, Roza, and Perel Wolman of Capresti.

19063 Translation - Other

5/29/2011 4:08 PM In preparation for emigration to the US from Argentina, Solomon Spivak received this document from the French consulate in Buenos Aires. I would like help with a full translation of this document and any intepretive comments on its purpose. Why would a Russian Jew leaving Argentina for New York get this document through the French consulate? In 1921, his native town would have been in Romania. View the post with its 1 response
19137 Translation - Russian

5/25/2011 6:10 PM NO MORE RESPONSES NEEDED


This is a newspaper article written by Benjamin Rosenblatt, one of my paternal grandmother's nephews, about (I suppose) the members of his family who were killed in the Shoah.

I would warmly appreciate a translation - I know it's a long text, but I don't understand Russian.

Thanks in advance for your help.
Best,
Ana Gerschenfeld

19136 Photo Identification

5/25/2011 6:09 PM I would like to know if this is indeed from Lithuania and to narrow down the apporximate year it might have been taken. I would also like to know something about the clothing and hat he is wearing.

I found this photo among my great aunt's belongings. I suspect it might be her grandfather, Rabii Meir Singerman or her father Samuel Kaplan. Knowing the time period will narrow it down for me.
