21306 Translation - Other

1/15/2012 4:14 PM This is the back of an envelope containing a letter to Lil Spiwak while she stayed with her father's sister's family in Capresti, Romania. The letter bears a US postmark on the front of Aug. 12.
Please can someone tell me about the place name "Sosire" on the Romanian postmark? And if you invert the image, can someone tell me the date it reached Capresti?

1/15/2012 4:14 PM Whose flamboyant signature in Lil's diary is this? The date appears to be August 27, 1929. On the facing page is another fancy signature--can anyone translate it for me? It seems to bear the same date. View the post with its 1 response

21299 Do you recognize?

1/15/2012 4:12 PM This photo was probably taken in New Jersey. The elderly woman is my maternal ggm Anna Strongin Friedland with her daughter Naomi, my gm's sister, and Naomi's son. I have traced all of my gm's siblings after they arrived in the US except Naomi. My gm's and her siblings were from Ekaterninslav. They were all brought to the US by their brother and uncle, Louis Strongin, with the exception of Naomi. Naomi's passage was probably paid for by her fiance whom she married.

1/15/2012 4:06 PM This photo shows my grandfather Leo Hutter (first to the right) and grandmother Charlotte Hutter (6th from the right) , Itzhak Reiser (her cousin) and his wife Rosa Reiser (most left). This picture was taken in the 1930s, possible in Lwow. My grandparents were originally from Przemysl/Jaroslaw in Galizia and moved after WW I to Slovakia, Nograd area. I would like to know if somebody recognizes the other people in the picture who must be my relatives, the young person is called Klara. View the post with its 1 response
