15695 Do you recognize?

6/27/2010 5:00 PM This is a 1 of 2 composite posters of class photos of graduates from the Hebrew Gymnasium pre WWII, with the composite made at a gathering of graduates someplace in Israel about 1980. Does anyone know anyone in the photo and the genesis of the composite? I've also uploaded the second poster. View the post, there are no responses

15807 Interpretation

6/27/2010 4:44 PM Passenger #22 is listed as "Simcho Ziembel." This could be the entry for my great-grandfather. His petition and naturalization papers list this ship, and the age is close (he was born 1889, making him 22 when he left Russia in 1911).However, "Simcho" is listed as "[F]emale", occupation "maid." (The age is 25, but I wouldn't put too much emphasis on that.)

There are handwritten numbers under the "Race or People" column, with a stamped date of June 6, 1916. One of the numbers is "16000" or "1600C." I have seen a request for information on this type of number before, but can't find any answer.

Simcho's ("Simon") naturalization papers are dated July 5, 1916, but none of the other numbers match the "54023" written on the manifest.

I've looked at the explanation of handwritten notes, but I wonder if there is something that would provide a better explanation? Does "54023" correspond to some other certificate or document that I can request?

6/27/2010 4:44 PM EDITED IMAGE (cropped with some non-relevant information erased) from a ship manifest (refer to other postings concerning interpretation of handwritten numbers). The full image can be found in ViewMate posting ID #15808, http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=15808

Please decipher the handwritten information. I have typed what I can figure out (basically the word "father" and the surname "Ziembel"). The town name is probably an alternate spelling of "Luchinets" based on the JewishGen Communities Database.

If this is, indeed, Simon Zemble (Simcho Ziembel) then his father's name is "Moshe Chaim" based on his gravestone.

15796 Translation - Hebrew

6/27/2010 4:44 PM This is an entry from the great Synagogue Marriage Register. I'm interested in the Hebrew translation of the names of Sarah Jacobs and Nathan Abrahams.

According to www.synagoguescribes.com, Nathan is 'son of Moshe (of Azov)' - is this what it says?

6/27/2010 4:43 PM Death register. First record only. Samson Blum. The image I posted shows 1st page of the ledger and then below it the continuation of the record on the 2nd page of ledger. Please translate column headings and content for last column on 1st page, and all columns on 2nd page. It would help if you used the format "Column heading: content" in the same sequence as the record. I know the place names Szedlisk, Tot Kajnya, Varanno. I just need to know the contaxt from the header. Thank you in advance. View the post with its 1 response
