This entry is in both Russian and Yiddish (or Hebrew?) I had the Russian translated ; I include that translation here. However, on JRI Poland, the index of the record mentions the town of Orle. Can anyone tell me if Orle is mentioned in the Hebrew? This is what I am told it says in Russian: marriage on Jun. 18, 1863 in Białystok between
Berel Kopelowicz Lewin, hat maker, from the city of Białystok, 19 years old, and Rajne, single, daughter of Szmuel Sarwer, 20 years old from Białystok; witnesses: Dowid Segal and Mesre Wid; rabbi: Jankiel Manid;
My Russian translator says there is no mention of Orle in the Russian, so I am wondering if it is mentioned in the Hebrew/Yiddish. Thank you-

22315 Translation - Yiddish

4/8/2012 4:10 PM This postcard was sent to Louis Abramowitz in New York by one of his brothers. On the other side of the message is a photo of a group of students and teachers at an evening school in Suvainiskis, probably showing the sender/brother and a sister of the sender and Louis among the students. Louis, who changed his surname to Abers, was known in Lithuania as Shmuel to his siblings. There is one sentence in blue ink, probably not written by the sender, which is upside down to the sender's message. Knowing this is a difficult message to translate, I'd appreciate as much of a translation as possible. View the post with its 3 responses
22316 Do you recognize?

4/8/2012 4:10 PM This photo is on the back of a postcard sent to Louis Abramowitz by one of his brothers, whose name is uncertain. The message part of the postcard, written in Yiddish, is also posted. The two numbers in black probably are meant to identify the sender/brother, as well as perhaps a sister of both brothers. Perhaps, someone with roots in Suvainiskis will recognize this photo of an evening school class, and be able to identify some of those shown. View the post, there are no responses
22317 Tombstone

4/8/2012 4:10 PM My 3rd Great Grandfather was born in what is now known as Inowroclaw, Poland. I believe he moved to England between 1841 and 1851, firstly to Hull then Birmingham, then London - Hampstead.

The name he used when he moved to England was Saul SCOTT, his father's name, on his marriage certificate, was given as Hyam SCOTT.

I would be grateful if someone can let me know if there is any additional information, particularly other name(s), in the Hebrew text (I assume) on his tombstone.

thanks,
