14422 Translation - Other

1/27/2010 This text was on the back of two identical photos which depict two girls. The English reads "Mariam and Loke [?] Newman, Fannie Seifer's first cousins. Does the other writing, which I assume to be Romanian, give more information? Thanks. View the post with its 7 responses

14426 Translation - Hebrew

1/27/2010 I recently connected with the descendants of my second great-aunt, who immigrated to Israel when all her brothers came instead to the U.S. Their whole family is on, which is fantastic, but since I don't read Hebrew, I still don't really know what their names are. The first two generations are probably Yiddish names; the succeeding generations probably have Hebrew names.

The image depicts just a fraction of the family tree. I have 123 new family members, and 101 are listed on Geni with only Hebrew-character names. If you are interested in helping, please respond, and I can email you a GEDCOM that you could edit so the name fields contain both Yiddish/Hebrew and "English" names. I would also appreciate notes on pronunciation if it isn't obvious. Translate only as many names as you feel like, then send it back to me. If somebody else volunteers, I will send him or her the updated version.

Thank you so much, Genners, for all your help.

14427 Do you recognize?

1/27/2010 Hi, there.

I am seeking help on identifying the top/first town name shown on this 1911 Ellis Island Passenger list for my Brunstein family from Mohyliv Podilskyy, Russia (today, Ukraine). My great grandmother Reise Brunstein identified this town - that appears to start with an "L" - as where she was from, whereas the other family members travelling with her said Mohyliv (Podilskyy). Any ideas? Thanks, Marla Raucher Osborn
