17630 Translation - Yiddish

1/5/2011 4:05 PM This was written on the back of a picture of a couple. I believe they are Wolf Blumberg and his wife whose name is uncertain.
I would like to verify that guess and to know what the message says and to whom it is addressed.
Also, there is a photographer's stamp in the part I cropped out. It is too pale to scan decently, but it appears to say: Foto ,,UNIVERSAL" Szczecin, ul. Slowackiego 1, which I believe is an address. I would like to know what .ul and Slowackiego indicate.

1/5/2011 4:05 PM This is a continuation of information on the passenger list entry for Chane Ruchel Schnapp. About 1/2 way down is who she is going to join. Brother somebody Schnapp. I know Isak is in NY by then and there might be a sister (3rd image), but cannot decipher this given name. And what is the squiggle after New York (before 706 5th St.)? The person on the following line is also of interest as this passenger, Biele Weithorn, is traveling with Chane. Father something Weithorn. Thank you, Jane View the post with its 3 responses

1/2/2011 4:14 PM This is one of many postcards of my great grandmother that I have recently found.

I think it was given to her during WW1 while she was in exile in Ludza.

Any help with the translation would be very much appreciated.

Kind regards

17627 Do you recognize?

1/2/2011 4:14 PM This photo was taken on 26th of september 1928 in Karlsbad.
The small boy on the right side with a cup is my grandfather. He lived with his parents at that time in Dresden (till 1933 when they moved to Antwerp).
There is a Karlsbad in Germany and in the Czech Republic (which is closer then the German Karlsbad to Dresden).
Is there anyone that can tell me more on the photo?
Who are the people being photographed?
Where was it taken?
Who was the photographer, etc?

1/2/2011 4:13 PM 3rd image of Schnapp passenger lists. Isak Schnap arrived in 1901 with Abraham. From marriage records and JRI-Poland indexes, I don't think they are brothers (marriages name different parents, both sets of parents appear in JRI-P) However, line 6 Abraham and 7 Isak seem to be going to join the same sister. Cannot decipher the name of this person. Have no idea of any other family members already in US. (Didn't know about Abraham until this list!) I appreciate any and all suggestions. Many thanks,
JaAne

17613 Translation - Russian

1/2/2011 4:13 PM I believe this to be the marriage of Nathan Ellerstein and Celia Rosenthal - here given as Nachman Elensztejn and Szimja Radsilowska (as indexed in JRI-Poland). Would appreciate a complete translation, but particularly interested if parents are named and residence. Thanks very much. View the post with its 1 response

1/2/2011 4:13 PM Need help deciphering the name of person left behind on this 1907 passenger list entry. Passenger is Chane Ruchel Schnapp. This might read father - Suskind, but what is the next name? Town Pohorylce, Galicia. The following entry is also of interest -- someone Weithorn (traveling together). Her brother identifies his father as Siskind Shnap (mother Gety Sacher)on his 1906 NY marriage record. From JRI-Poland entries, I believe the father was Suskind Sacher (mother Ite Schnapp). 2 more images of this family. Many thanks. I left extra lines of text to help figure out the letters!
