7/24/2011 8:20 PM I would be grateful if someone could read the german handwriting on this postcard and provide an exact transliteration of the wording. It is from about 1917, written by my greatgrandmother to my grandmother (Jella Adler).
Thank you

7/24/2011 8:20 PM I found this paper inside an old sefer (religious book) that I own, and thought it would be of interest to Sighet researchers, especially any of the families mentioned. It lists the times for the beginning and end of Shabbos, the deadline for closing stores before Shabbos, etc. It also has advertisements on the front and back for several wine and meat dealers.

7/24/2011 8:20 PM I found this paper inside an old sefer (religious book) that I own. It is a receipt for charity given by Shmuel WEINER, who apparently was a butcher or kashruth supervisor, to an old age home in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem). If this is connected with your family or you have another serious interest, contact me and I will send you the original. View the post with its 1 response

19644 Translation - Yiddish

7/24/2011 8:19 PM This is a composite of two former ViewMate submissions, VM 14527 and VM 14662. I only noticed recently that the women in these photos look enough like each other to be the same person.

The text has already been fully translated, but on both pictures it was difficult to interpret her name. Does seeing them side-by-side help at all?

Secondly, would you say that the handwriting is the same?

Finally, do you see any clues in the pictures themselves that might indicate whether they were taken in Bessarabia, the United States, or Israel?

19640 Translation - German

7/24/2011 8:18 PM I believe this to be the death record for Abraham Danne, the father of Pauline Danne, who was the wife in the marriage record I have just submitted (DSC_7533-small.jpg). I would appreciate some help in reading the old German script, particularly the date and the age at death. Thank you.

19642 Translation - Yiddish

7/24/2011 8:18 PM Please translate the text on the back of this photo. And does anyone recognize the location? If it's in the U.S., it's probably in the Bronx-- and if it's not, it may be in Israel. Thank you! View the post with its 4 responses
19643 Translation - Yiddish

7/24/2011 8:18 PM I have pasted two former submissions together (top, 15570; bottom, VM 14526) after learning that both translations mentioned a name like Chaike/Khaiyke. I am hoping that a side-by-side comparison might help us to glean more information about her.

There are only a few holes in the family tree, but Chaike doesn't seem to fit them. Bluma, the woman on the far right, had a sister Surah WOLF whom I've been unable to track down, but the woman in the glasses is a generation younger than Bluma. I've been looking for a Chana WEISSER/VAIZER/WEINSTEIN who would be about the right age, but she would be first cousin (not aunt) to Malka, who signed the back of the photo, and is on the other side of my family tree anyway.

Is Chaike associated with any other names/nicknames? Does it have any literal meaning in Yiddish? What would be a common Anglicization of that name? Is there anything in one photo that helps inform the other?

As always, thanks for your help.

19636 Translation - Russian

7/24/2011 8:17 PM My grandmother's name appears on this passport and I was interested in knowing the name she went by in Russia and also if she had a middle name. Perhaps it is "daughter of .."
I would appreciate knowing what other information is contained on the two pages.
Many thanks for you assistance.

19637 Translation - German

7/24/2011 8:17 PM This seems to be the marriage document of my husband's great-grandfather's brother (or perhaps cousin), Carl Isaac Cohn, who married Pauline Dana (or Danne). Although I read some German, I can't read the old German script and would appreciate help in interpreting what is written here. I am particularly interested in the date, the occupation, and any personal information in this document. This is the right-hand page of the record. I'll also upload a scan of the left-hand page that includes the names of the parents of the couple. Thank you.

19638 Translation - German

7/24/2011 8:17 PM This is the left-hand page of the marriage document for Carl Isaac Cohn and Pauline Danne. The right-hand page is DSC_7533-small.jpg, which I have already uploaded to this site. This document gives the names of their parents, but I can't read most of it in the old German script. I would appreciate some help in interpreting the handwriting, especially of the names of the mothers. Thank you.

19639 Translation - German

7/24/2011 8:17 PM This is part of the birth record for a cousin of my husband's grandfather. This is the right-hand page of the document. The only information on the left-hand page is that the baby was a male and the given name was Theodor. I would appreciate some help in interpreting the old German script. In particular, I am interested in the date and any personal information about this family. Thank you.
