19078 Tombstone

5/22/2011 4:26 PM Please translate the Hebrew on these two stones. The names are Bessie Fingerman Solon and Isaac Solon. The original surname was Sakolsky (which is inscribed at the very bottom of each stone.) We believe that Isaac's name was Yitzhak Zalman and his father was Ozer. Thank you very much.

19071 Translation - Russian

5/22/2011 4:25 PM This is written on the back of a photo with six young people, three of whom (Meier, Usher, and Mindl Kotel) are siblings of my grandmother, one who was my grandfather's nephew Avram, and the other, name unknown, later married Avram. There is one other person, a younger boy, whose identity is unknown. I'm especially eager top know Avram's last name, the name of his girlfriend, and the name of the unknown boy, but the entire translatyion is of interest. View the post with its 2 responses

19028 Translation - Yiddish

5/22/2011 4:22 PM This letter was recently discovered and appears to be from a relation to my wife's grandmother who stayed behind. We think it is from the late '30s or early '40s. The family was from the Lodz area and we assumed the letter was in Polish but it seems to be Yiddish or German.

We would like an idea of what the letter is about, recognizing the difficulty of interpreting the handwriting, etc.

There are two other pages which I will post and assume to be part of the same letter but that is only a guess.
