19769 Translation - Polish

8/7/2011 4:05 PM Please translate the entire record if possible. Of major interest are the names and relationship of all family and witnesses, and the actual date of birth. Thank you! View the post with its 1 response
19766 Translation - Yiddish

8/7/2011 4:05 PM This is (hopefully) the Yiddish birth record of Hana Korenman, daughter of Gidailia Haskelevich Korenman and his wife Reisia (the daughter of Gersh). She was born in Shargorod on 20 November 1915, at least according to the Russian entry. She entered the US as Anne Corn in 1921.

A full translation would be greatly appreciated.

19765 Translation - Russian

8/7/2011 4:04 PM This is an extract of the 1859 revision list for the town of Orgeyev (Bessarabia). There is a note near the name Abram indicating that he was listed in 1860 in another place. Could anyone identify the name of that place? Thanks a lot, Yonatan Kupchik View the post with its 2 responses

19755 Translation - Russian

8/3/2011 5:04 PM Thanks to a number of JewishGen members, a postcard with a family picture on the reverse was translated from Yiddish to English. The writer referred to his learned daughter Esther. In the photo, the "learned daughter" is holding a book. It is neither Yiddish nor Hebrew. I would be very interested to know the title of the book.
Thanks

19746 Photo Identification

8/3/2011 5:03 PM See also reverse of image posted on ViewMate ID 19747.

This picture was in a photo frame with a calendar for 1934, it was done by Polsky Bros of 136 Whitechapel Road, London.

I have no idea who the people are so if anyone recognises them that would be fantastic. Otherwise I'm interested to know if this was actually taken in 1934 or as I suspect it's a copy of an earlier photo. Finally, is there anything unusual or interesting about the picture?

19748 Translation - Hebrew

8/3/2011 5:03 PM I believe this document to be in Hebrew. It was said to be a rabbinic testimonial vouching for a young man who wished to marry a daughter of Bearman Gollin of Liverpool Old Hebrew Congregation and it was left in his family papers.

I would like to know what it says, particularly anything that may throw light on places of family origin, names of relatives, or might be helpful to any descendents in tracing their genealogy.
