16310 Do you recognize?

8/18/2010 4:13 PM I have recently learned that relatives of my grandmother settled in South Africa...Durban and Johannesburg I believe. My grandmother was Miriam Klotz and originally lived in Russia...a town near Nisihojz.

She also had a brother named Wolfe and perhaps another brother named David. All three made it to the US.

My Aunt Jean Bader visited with these Klotz relatives in 1956 in South Africa.

The picture was taken by ALLROUND STUDIO. On the back is some Yiddish script ("Abraham Klotz and his inlaws) and a name and address:
W. Klotz
36 Belmont, Durban

Please let me know if you any of this rings a bell to anyone.

16299 Photo Identification

8/18/2010 4:12 PM What would you estimate as the year the photo was taken? What would you surmise are the ages of the subject and their relationship? It is possible that the older man is a rabbi, possibly a well-known rabbi in Lodz. View the post with its 3 responses
16300 Photo Identification

8/18/2010 4:12 PM Can you advise me about the significance of the attire of these two people? They are likely to be my Hungarian grandparents, but they were from an area that is now called Selmeczbánya),Slovakia.
Does their attire reflect Jewish custom at the time?

8/18/2010 4:12 PM On the opposite side is a picture of a woman I believe is my great great grandmother. Please do your best to decipher this Hebrew- it may be Yiddish. I edited it to make it as legible as possible. Thank you so much in advance!
