10/2/2011 4:13 PM Hello
These words are written on the back of a photo ( family member) I was given. No one knows who it is or what it says. I was hoping someone would be able to translate it for me. I shared it with one person who speaks hebrew and another who speaks russian. They were unable to translate.
Thank you.
Sheri

20315 Translation - Hungarian

10/2/2011 4:12 PM Hello,
In the Birth registry of my g-grandmother appears her father's occupation as "uzer".
I tried in the Hungarian-English dictionary and found nothing. Even in the Hungarian Occupations in JewishGen it does not mentioned. This occupation appears also in the next name- Roth. Can someone tell me what occupation it is ?
Many thanks.

20274 Translation - Yiddish

10/2/2011 4:06 PM I am re-posting this text which is written on the reverse of photo a large family gathering, possibly at holiday dinner table in Lithuania. I have attempted to enhance the script as it has substantially faded, however, any recognizable words may help my identification of the photo. Any assistance with the translation or other enhancing techniques would be appreciated. The enhancement displayed is a negative image of the original text. Might an Ultraviolet scan render a more readable image? View the post, there are no responses
