21358 Translation - Russian

2/8/2012 4:30 PM I believe these are my paternal grandparents, married in Jozefow nad Wisla, (about 10 miles from Lipsko). My grandfather's family were from Lipsko. Other relatives lived in Ranom and Zvolin. Getting the bride's and groom's parents, home towns and witness' information could help me sort it out and perhaps go back one generation on my Grandmother's side. The record also has the witnesses signatures in Hebrew - that might help also.
This is the most important record I have been able to obtain yet. Any help will be very much appreciated. Thank you.

21535 Do you recognize?

2/8/2012 4:29 PM My mother's grandfather, Rabbi Avram Korcklenkar (not sure of the surname) is in the bottom row, third from the left, holding a cane. In this country, the name was changed to Carlin.
I would appreciate any information about him and or this photo.
We were told that he was a rabbi and used to intercede with the Russian authorities on behalf of the Jewish community. We were also told that his sons received a good education because of his position.

2/5/2012 4:28 PM I am researching families Friedlander, Jutrosin (Poland)1850's and Berlin 1920-30, and also Benzian family Margonin 1840's (Poland)
Is it possible to have the two images which are from the LBI collections and I believe they show information on the Friedlander family.

21577 Interpretation

2/5/2012 4:27 PM This is from a passenger manifest. Can anyone identify the town of last residence, which is also the town where their nearest relative lived?

The EIDB index lists the town as Kipos.

If anyone wants to see the manifest on EIDB, the name is indexed as Peizach Ber Bobisch, arriving March 20, 1914, Line 1. His wife & daughter are lines 2 & 3.

He states he was born in Vilna. His brother, who arrived in the 1890's, was supposedly born in Odessa.

Thank you.
