17973 Interpretation

2/13/2011 5:28 PM This is the son of Israel Milstein of Orgeyev. We do not know his first name or how he died. He appears to be wearing a military uniform. Can anyone identify his uniform for me? What is the insignia on his cap? Might this be from the period of the Russo-Japanese war? Israel and his second wife, Chane Spiwak Milstein, emigrated to the US in 1921 with their four children.

17974 Interpretation

2/13/2011 5:28 PM I need help interpreting the handwritten comments on this ship manifest for Pinie and Jossel Schaposhnik (lines 2 and 3). They left Hamburg on the SS Amerika 9 February and arrived New York 20 February. I think it says "brothers" near their names, but their ages are identical: 25. In the far right column, there appears to be a doctor's name. I am not sure what to make of the comment. Can anyone help me understand it? View the post with its 1 response
