20857 Translation - Polish

11/27/2011 4:13 PM This is the back of a photo of two women - found in the personal belongings of my father's cousin. It appears to be information about the professional photographer. I would appreciate a translation because I believe it will identify where the photo was taken (town, country). Also, I'd appreciate any other background info that might help us to identify the women. Thank you! View the post with its 2 responses

20853 Translation - German

11/27/2011 4:13 PM Pages 1 and 4 of a letter from Louis Lowenstein (NYC) to his uncle, Alfred Lowenstein back home near Wiesbaden, Germany. Other uncles in NY, Benjamin and Moses, or a cousin Arthur or brother Carl may be mentioned. What is the money matter mentioned in the letter?
The writer's father, Salomon, emigrated to NY and died there between 1900 and 1903. Louis may be working in his uncle Benjamin's metals business.
I will probably recognize rough translations of any other family names and towns mentioned in the letter. A complete translation should help me decipher the many other similar documents in my family archives.

20854 Translation - German

11/27/2011 4:13 PM A precise translation isn't needed but I'd be curious to know some basic information about this document and the transaction it describes. Does is it a tax or fee or maybe a currency conversion or export license?

I am aware of the hyperinflation in Germany at the time. A rough suggestion of the value described by the massive number on the document would be interesting but not required.

My grandfather, Alfred Lowenstein was in the grain business including exports. He had a wealthy uncle in the USA who could possibly have sent US Dollars for some business or civic reason at about this time.

20855 Translation - German

11/27/2011 4:13 PM The day following the death of my great grandmother Zerline nee Moses Loewenstein her family sent this letter to an official in Beerfelden where she had been born on 25 March, 1830. From the context I understand that this was a request clear up uncertainty about the date of Zerline's birth.

Because of its importance to our family history, I would love to have an exact translation of the letter. A higher resolution scan can be provided if necessary.

Zerline's parents were Moses Moses and Ester Ehrmann. Her late husband was Eleasar Loewenstein. They were married Nov. 7, 1850.

It's remarkable that a reply to this request was written by a civil official within 3 days. (See associated ViewMate file.)

20845 Sharing Document

11/27/2011 4:10 PM A translation has been received. Thank you. NO TRANSLATION REQUIRED.

This letter of invitation is addressed to my grandfather. It concerns a meeting to discuss "the Jewish situation" in Germany.

The document is dated February 27, 1933. The Reichstag Fire began in the final hours of that day.

The text gives no indication that this meeting was called in response to the anti-semetic furor that followed the Berlin fire. Therefore, this document, found among my grandfather's papers, seems terribly prophetic.

20809 Translation - Polish

11/27/2011 4:09 PM I got this image from LDS microfilm for Zuromin, Poland. This is the death record of Ruchla Szmuzik (Smuzik), and it was recorded in 1865. I believe she was the first wife of Szlama Josek Szmuzik, and her maiden name was Szymkow. I'd like to know her date of death and the date of registration, as well as any personal details mentioned in the entry. View the post with its 2 responses
