20566 Translation - Russian

10/26/2011 4:44 PM 3 pages of an affadavit. The questions are in both Russian (I presume) and English so those don't need a translation. However, the answers are not in English, I assume Russian but could be Yiddish? Trying to determine whether this is the Charles Hershorn in my family or not. Names are especially wanted but other info would be helpful as well. View the post with its 1 response

17487 Translation - German

10/26/2011 4:43 PM Can someone with better eyes for German script please tell me the general idea of the contents of this letter (page 1 of 2)? The handwriting is indecipherable to me. I think it's from my gggm to one of her daughters. Are there names, dates, or places discussed? Thanks very much for any help.

20554 Tombstone

10/23/2011 4:17 PM This is supposed to be an image of my Great-Grandfather's headstone. His name was Hermann Neumann. If anyone can translate the writing on it I would very much appreciate it. This area was originally part of Hungary, then Czechoslovakia, now Slovakia. I presume it is Hebrew, as I recognize some of the lettering as noted on your site ("Reading Hebrew Tombstones"). Thank you very much. My email is neumanneve@comcast.net and my JewishGen ID# is 226018. View the post with its 2 responses
