10/20/2013 10:24 PM Hello Scott,

As far as I can see, this document was prepared in 1937. I will decipher what I can for you....

Di Mame/The Mother - 71
??????? - 52
Rochel - 42
Aizik/Isaac - 30
Miriam - 31
Rivkah - 23 - born 1914 - (3rd day of Chesvan)
Moshe - 21 - born 1916 - (21st day of Tevez)
Sorah/Sara - 17 - born 1920 - (25th day of Kislev)
Aharon/Aaron - 15 - born 1922 - (8th day of Iyar)

The notations in perenthesis are the Hebrew dates of birth. On the last four, the Hebrew years are included, and perhaps someone else can provide that information.
Hope that this gives you a good start.....Jo

It says "photographed 10th day of passover TRTsZ [hebrew year] april 1937"

The first entry says "the aunt: 71 years old"
Second entry looks like Pavel 52 " " [or Paunel or Paushel, one letter is hard to read. Most likly Pavel, though].
Rest of the entries are as stated in the previous response.
10/22/2013 4:31 PM Hello Scott,

I've checked the spelling in Google Translate, and I stand corrected.

The spelling in the text is Mu-me/Mo-me, which translates to "Aunt". The word Ma-me means mother, however that is not the spelling in the note. Sorry about the mistake.

Also, the second name appears to be Pavel, age 52.

Jo

10/25/2013 9:46 PM For the 4 younger people, the text says of each "the x year" not their, age, and also contains the Gregorian month, as follows:

Rivka October
Moshe July
Sarah December
Aharon may
