18542 Interpretation

4/3/2011 4:08 PM This is a detail of a Vienna Meldezettel of my great-grandmother's sister Laura NEUMANN. I could read all details about address, birthday etc. But am not sure about this section - it is a comment entered where one usually finds the future address of the person who is moving out.
Language is GERMAN

18513 Translation - Hebrew

4/3/2011 4:08 PM According to a prior translation, this is a plaque erected by the chevra Kadisha (burial society) of Hataresh.

It is adjacent to what appears to be his gravestone.

Presently, this translation does not show he is a Rabbi

I would appreciate it if more details can be translated. This is for my shtetlink site and I would like to find out as much about this family from both images that I have uploaded.

If someone out there spots additional details such as the fact that he is a Rabbi, it would be appreciated.

Thanks to all who do is truly a mitzvah.

Thank you so much...Debbie :)

18535 Translation - Yiddish

3/30/2011 4:04 PM This is page two of a two-page letter that was sent in the early 1960s to Mrs. B. Weisberg - my cousin's grandmother. It's from her family (Mr. and Mrs. David Zaban) in California.

The family's history and the family's name (Zaban, Sable, Saboth) are a bit of a mystery to us, so we'd love to have this translated to English.
