25940 Interpretation

2/3/2013 8:10 PM I need help understanding where Scheine and Chaje Podzowsky, and Nechama Scher came from. This is a clip from their Hamburg passenger list. It lists their place of residence as Kros.

Nechama Sher's brother lived in Girkalnis, Lithuania, and the Padzowski/ Pozefsky family lived in Grinkiskis at one point.

Thank you very much.

25910 Translation - Yiddish

2/3/2013 8:02 PM 2/14/2013 - A better scan of this image has been submitted and is awaiting approval. It includes a scan of the other side of the postcard, which is, in fact, the first side.



Please translate as much of the postcard as possible. A triangular piece is missing from the top of the postcard, resulting in incomplete sentences in the first four lines.

Letter was sent from Baruch Yegelwel/Jegelwel in Abramowo Plesische, near Dmitrowicz, Brest, in Poland to his brother William Yegelwel in NYC.

Thank you for your help.
