12/26/2010 5:48 PM This is one of the documents found in my great grandfather's immigration file. I found the images in the Li-Ra-Ma collection. I believe they are immigration papers
and perhaps a letter of introduction.
I would appreciate any information about what is contained in these documents. Thanks very much.

17549 Interpretation

12/26/2010 5:47 PM Morris Baseman (aka Morishe Beisman) immigrated from Ukraine. His declaration of intention, petition for naturalization and census info say he was from Odessa, yet the manifest in 1904 on the S.S. Campania (arriving NY 12/24/1904) suggests he is from a town that is something like Dobrorviy. What do you think this town (fourth one from the top) looks like to you? I presume it would be a town near Odessa. View the post with its 2 responses

12/26/2010 5:47 PM I've uploaded this cropped view of the baptismal record and have attempted to make the 'taped' words more visible. The consensus so far is that the newborn is Anna, the baba (grandmother or old woman) is Anna Sdatko, the mother is Ksenia Stakhira or Stahira, the father is Matei/Matej Stakhira or Stahira, the godfather is Theodor. If you can read anything else, please let me know! Thanks once again. -Debbie (also - do you think that Anna Sdatko WAS the grandmother?) View the post with its 3 responses

12/26/2010 5:44 PM This is the birth record (Akt 104) for Moszek Pinkus SZWARC. The record is from Lowicz, Russian Empire (now Poland) and is dated 1889. I assume it is in handwritten Russian Cyrillic. I would appreciate any help in getting a full (word for word) translation of this birth record. I am working on the family of my husband's grandmother Gussie Schwartz who was born in the Lowicz area. Thank you. Barbara Evans (Mrs. Mark Menchik) of San Diego, CA View the post with its 1 response
17540 Do you recognize?

12/22/2010 4:07 PM In my search for the two "lost" sisters of Abram Spiwak, Sore Spiwak Wollman and Dvore Spiwak, I came upon this image of three women (three generations of the same family?) in the Kishinev ghetto c 1941. The image, taken by a photographer named Wamser, is from the Bundesarchiv, which allows images displayed on WikiCommons to be shared for free. The caption of the original image is "Jewish women." Does anyone recognize any of these women? View the post, there are no responses
