10/31/2012 5:03 PM Photo of young woman taken in photography studio.

Some writing in Russian along with Yiddish or Hebrew.

This was sent to my by the grandchild of my grandfather's uncle? We are trying to figure out how this lady is related. I have the same photo and the Russian was translated to read it was from cousin Dora in Druskininkai to my grandfather Eliezer.

With your help we hope to learn who she was, where she was and how is she related.

Thank you.

10/31/2012 5:03 PM Picture of a young woman sitting on a blanket at the beach? Probably my husband's mother Frida Fuchs Schonbrun in Israel. She was from Zwolen, Poland and survived labor camps and Buchenwald. She went to Israel 1948?

We hope to learn what the note says and where she was.

Thank you!

24770 Translation - Russian

10/31/2012 5:02 PM Translation of all words on this back of a photo please. A photo of my grandparents with 2 sons, taken before they moved to London in 1911 or 1912. Was this studio in Baku or Kiev? Any comments about their clothes please? They do not appear well-off to me. Yet managed to get to England. View the post with its 2 responses
24771 Translation - Russian

10/31/2012 5:02 PM A translation of every word please. I believe that this refers to birth of my uncle Max (Marcus). Is this the usual birth certificate issued at that time - or a letter confirming his birth? Born in Baku, although parents were married in Kiev in 1908. Was Baku safer for Jews than Kiev at that time? Second son, Misha, was born in Baku in October 1910. Thanks for your help. View the post with its 2 responses
