15281 Translation - Polish

5/16/2010 4:25 PM Request translation of the bride's name and the facts about her - parents, guardians, place of residence, etc. This appears to be the marriage certificate of Mudka Katolik and Abraham Herslowicz. She was probably born Mudka Joskowicz in 1827. Her parents should be Zysla (still living) and Wolf Dawid (deceased). View the post with its 3 responses

15355 Do you recognize?

5/16/2010 4:07 PM Does anyone recognize the young woman in this photo? The photo was among my deceased aunt's collection of family photos. The name on the reverse simply says "Edelson." However, no one in the family recognizes her. We think the photo was taken in about 1942 - 1944.

The Edelsons (formerly Idelovich) were related to the Silverman/Zilberman family and possibly to the Liebowitz family, all of whom came from Kovno Guberniya, Russia. Most famiily members emigrated to Manchester, England, from 1875 - 1900. Thereafter, they emigrated to Brooklyn and the Bronx in New York City in about 1912. However, a few family members remained behind in England and in Kovno Guberniya.

5/16/2010 4:06 PM This is Section 1 of a postcard that was mailed from Russia to my paternal grandmother in Pittsburgh in August 1913. She emigrated from Russia to the US in July 1913. ------ Because the writing on the card is extremely cramped, and somewhat faded in spots I've divided it into five large (overlapping) sections for posting on Viewmate. If it will help with the deciphering of the card I'll be very happy to email larger resolution photos of each section to anyone who requests them. ---- The other four sections are on Viewmate as follows: Section 2 is VM15348 -- Section 3 is VM15349 -- Section 4 is VM15350 and Section 5 is is VM15351. ---A copy of the whole card is posted here. --------http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/FbWnL3Y3eD9I3hHVkk3buw?feat=directlink-----------------------

5/16/2010 4:05 PM This family photo was sent to me by Annette Guerron. I believe it is a family portrait of the Liebowitz and/or Bassman families. Lena's maiden name might have been Bassman. View the post with its 1 response

15389 Tombstone

5/12/2010 4:50 PM I'd appreciate it if someone could translate the tombstone and the script at the top of the photo. It seems to me the tombstone of a 17 day old child who died in March of 1920 but I am not sure. I have no idea about the script. View the post with its 3 responses

15396 Photo Identification

5/12/2010 4:50 PM Supposedly this is a newspaper's staff or a writers meeting. The taller may be my grandfather Shalom Katz (not sure about possible new name), who was an yiddish journalist.
I want to know the newspaper's name, and if to someone the man is known. Looking for his descendants.
Thanks in advance.
Ariela Fridman.
