19980 Translation - German

8/31/2011 4:19 PM This postcard was sent from Leo Fränkel in Galicia (in an army camp) to his sister Leontine who was living in Vienna. It is believed that Leo died in the Austro-Hungarian Army in WWI. This is the only information we have relevant to Leo so the contents of the post card are important to the family. The postcard is written in script German that I cannot read. I would love to have a complete translation of its contents. Thank you. View the post with its 6 responses

19927 Tombstone

8/31/2011 4:15 PM Assens, Denmark. I have several questions about the date and abbreviations I am not familiar with and do not appear in published list. First, the abbreviations.

1. On the upper right the first two Hebrew letters appear to be a caf and a hey כה. Could this stand for Cohane??
2. At the end of the Hebrew inscription after the date are 3 letters. They appear to be bet, hey, lamid בהל. Any ideas what this could mean?

Finally, the date itself. It is written תר שנת. This is equivalent to 600 – with the millennium 5000 = 5600 or 1841 in the Gregorian calendar. However, this date is followed by the abbreviation לפק. As I understand it, this abbreviation indicates the date does not include the millennium. So instead of inserting 2 characters “ ה to indicate the millennium, the stone carver instead inserted 3 characters to indicate this was left out. Any ideas? Perhaps just done to balance out the line?
Excellent photo by Tom Bronsted.

19978 Interpretation

8/28/2011 5:02 PM When my great great grandparents immigrated they listed this town as their last place of residence. I've had trouble trying to decipher what it actually says and have been unable to locate this town. I know that they were from Chernigov province, close to Kiev. Any ideas?

19973 Translation - Hungarian

8/28/2011 5:01 PM Please translate the note in the right column that clearly mentions both Hirschfeld and Deutschlander surnames. My great grandfather, Sandor Gyori died on 8 Mar 1934 at age 75. This is a partial copy of his death record from the FamilySearch website (Pest District VII, Jan 1934, Image #79.) His wife was named Julianna Hirschfeld in all other records. Julianna is actually 2nd wife. First wife was her sister, Yeanetta Hirschfeld. Here both his mother's and wife's last name is Deutschlander. Seems he married a cousin twice!
