17468 Translation - Russian

2/2/2011 4:04 PM This is the birth record (akt 107) for Bajla 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
6182 Translation - Yiddish

2/2/2011 4:04 PM The woman in the photo is my g-g-grandmother (Sarah Lakowitski). The picture was sent to her daughter, my g-grandmother. I am trying to confirm whether the man in the picture is the daughter's father or step father. I would greatly appreciate learning, for example, if there is any reference to the gentleman in the picture as "your father". Thank you. View the post with its 1 response
17824 Translation - Other

2/2/2011 4:02 PM Leizer (Eliezer) Vollman refers to Abram Spiwak as "Uncle," William, Abram's American name. I do not know why this card seems to be dated 1924, when Abram William's trip to Romania took place in 1929. Perhaps that's the date of the photo? Or the card was sent earlier?
What does this message say? Any interpretive comments are most welcome. Abram's older sister Sore married a Vollman. Perhaps this is her son and the image of Roza Perel Vollman, which follows, is his wife?

Embossed in the lower right corner is the name of a photo studio:

A Ghiser
Chisinau (Kishinev)
Does anyone have information to share about this photo studio?

1/30/2011 4:36 PM Hi, I would be happy if anyone could help me to translate the entry for Kosoy on this page (any data available). This is (I think) part of the vital records for the shtetl Dobroye found in the archives of Nikolaev. Thank you so much in advance, Yoni Kupchik. View the post with its 1 response
