23536 Translation - Hebrew

7/15/2012 3:54 PM This is a copy of my Great Grandparents Marriage Certificate, something I thought I would never find! I believe it is in Hebrew, but some of it could be in Russian or Lithuanian. I would love a full translation if at all possible as I cannot read any of it. Any help with this will be gratefully received. View the post with its 3 responses

23604 Do you recognize?

7/11/2012 4:14 PM I have been trying to identify this photo for some time. It was sent to me by a relative and she thought that it was a relative of the Kahn (Kagan) family from Zagare. On the back of the photo is marked "Mayor of Zagare".

Yesterday I was going through some newsletters that were sent to me by David Swit in the 1980's when he did exensive research on the Saron and Kahn families.

Through information that I read, and from the All Lithuanian Revision List, I believe this photo is probably Meir Saron, who lived ca 1810 to 1885 and whose wife's name was Mere.

Are there any Sarons out there who could confirm this? Thanks, Jo Ann Goldwater

7/11/2012 4:08 PM I am looking for present day family, of Isidore Grunberg/Grinberg/Greenberg.
He was born in Galatz, Romania about 1875. He emigrated and lived in London, England. He was a tailor. Isidore was married, possibly with children. He separated from his first wife about 1926. Isidore learned that he
had a young daughter outside of marriage, born in 1919 in London, England. Isidore, this young daughter and her birthmother, emigrated to France 1927 or 1928. They lived in Paris, France. They were relocated to a camp in Drancy, France. There was a round up of Romanian Jews in September 1942. Isidore was sent to Auschwitz and died 5 days later. His original family may not have had any knowledge of Isidore beyond 1927. This is a photo of Isidore from abt. 1930 taken in France. There might be a resemblance
to his present-day family.
