21917 Tombstone

3/4/2012 4:09 PM Hello.

This photograph was taken in the 1940's and is of the headstone from the grave of the sister of my great grandmother. The grave is located in a cemetery in California, but the deceased immigrated to the U.S. from Romania.

I would appreciate receiving a translation of the inscription.

Thank you very much.

21919 Photo Identification

3/4/2012 4:09 PM This old photograph has no identifying information and no family members are recognizable. It has been a mystery in my family for many years.

I would be interested in whatever conclusions might be drawn about the subjects, the location, the era, and the like.

Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

21868 Translation - Other

3/4/2012 4:07 PM This is supposedly a photo of my mother's grandfather but I do not know if it is my mother's maternal or paternal. I would like to know what is written on the back to learn where this was taken. I have another photo uploaded of my maternal grandmother which has the same/similar markings on the back. Thank you.

21877 Photo Identification

3/4/2012 4:07 PM This rather poor photo, sent to me by a relative, has no identifying marks on the back. I believe it to be members of the Lechtman family of Krasnoe, Podolia, now Ukraine, but I have no idea what year it could be. Can anyone give me an educated guess as to the approximate year? Identification of the people is partially dependant on whether the photo is from 1865 or 1905, or anywhere in between.

Is it traditional for husbands to stand behind their wives, and if so, can I assume that the left-hand man and woman, and the central man and woman, are couples? The older couple in the first row seem more traditional, as does the man behind them.

I would appreciate any help/comments anyone can give. Thank you.
