15137 Do you recognize?

4/18/2010 The woman is Betty Braun. She is listed in jewishgen records as the mother of Maximillian Leon Braun and Szymon Braun. She was known in our family as Beile Riba Braun. The older man in the photo is her father, ??? Braun. Her husband was David Richter, but he was in America in Cleveland when this photo was taken.She had planned to leave with the family when she became stricken with Typhoid while treating a neighbor and died. Maximillian later emigrated to USA and died in Cleveland as David(Leon) Richter. Szymon emigrated to Brazil in 1935. I have found my cousins in Brazil. I would appreciate if anybody else has seen this photo or recognizes the mother and her father. View the post, there are no responses

15140 Interpretation

4/18/2010 I submitted this several years ago without success and I am hoping that, now, some sharper eyes and/or some sharper minds can tell me the name of my grandfather's mother. This is from his death certificate.

Please don't tell me it is Mary Stetso. We are talking observant Jews in Lithuania in the early to mid-1800's. It is not Mary.

4/18/2010 Trying to get a translation on the word that looks like 'Hund'-something.

Note that the 30 and Somos 2 corresponds to Esti. It was near the bottom of the page from a pretty big file, so I cropped it and laid it out together.

Hope it helps and thanks in advance! ^_^
