46293 Photo Identification

4/20/2016 2:59 PM I am seeking help identifying possible dates, location, subject matter, etc. of attached Litvak ancestors in South Africa.

My grandmother, Rose LEVIN (1885 - 1928), emigrated from Rovno, Lithuania and we believe she was born in the shtetl Rietavas to Josel LEVIN and Hinda GROSSMAN. We believe Hinda’s mother was named Hya Mira. Rose had four siblings, Philip LEVIN (1875 - 1957), Devorah LEVIN (1890 - 1961), Bertha LEVIN (1895 - 1955) and Fannie LEVIN (1900 - 1990). They immigrated to South Africa in the late 1800’s or very early 1900’s. By 1906 Rose and Fannie had immigrated to New York. The other three children remained in South Africa.

Philip LEVIN was a butcher in Fauresmith, South Africa and married Pauline SIMMER (1894 - 1978). Devorah (Dora) LEVIN married Harris (Harold) BRICK (1893-1942) and lived in Pretoria, South Africa. Bertha married Max JAFFE (1883 - 1958) and lived in Pretoria, Bloemfontein, and Johannesburg, South Africa.

46287 Do you recognize?

4/20/2016 2:57 PM I received this undated photo from my 2nd cousin. I'm wondering if anyone recognizes the location. Is it Russia or Ukraine or is it in New York after they arrived here? Any idea of timeframe photo was taken? They arrived in NYC in 1906.My great grandmother is apparently the woman the arrow points to. Anyone recognize any of the women or children?

Thank you for any information!

4/20/2016 2:56 PM I found this document belonging to my father, David Katz. At that time, he was in Germany, I think, and the document is about his sister (or sister in law) Regina Katz.
I am trying to collect all the datas I can, in order to complete the story of my father, which he did not talk about when he was alive.
It is all very moving for me.
Thank you in advance
Rose

4/20/2016 2:55 PM This is a low quality scan, taken from:
http://agadd.home.net.pl/metrykalia/300/sygn.%20543/pages/PL_1_300_543_0056.htm
It is a birth registration of Elka and Scheindel Landa-Spatz-Hirsch (as indexed in the JRI, Akta 800 at the left buttom of the scan)
Since I am related to the Landau-Spatz family (my great grandfather Baruch Akiva Landau married Chana Etil Spatz) from Lviv (actually Rzeszow) area, this may be related to my family.
I am aware to the low quality, but will be grateful for any detail that can be extracted.
Thanks,
Ronen
