16802 Translation - Polish

10/3/2010 4:28 PM I recently asked the Polish Archives in Bialystok to send me a copy of a record for Szejny MORUCHOS and received the attached reply in Polish.

I think it says that the cost for one scan is US$0.70, and that I should pay by bank transfer using the bank's Swift code.

Could someone who reads Polish please let me know what the main paragraph and the last sentence ("Skan...") say? Thank you very much.

10/3/2010 4:27 PM This is part 1 of the census entry for Hirschel Aron and his family in the 1744 census of Mattersdorf's Jewish population. Other entries have a similar format so I want to make sure that I understand the exact wording. From what I can see the entry gives the names and ages for the head of the household, his wife, and children and identifies how the house came into his possession. But I would like exact wording for the entire entry. The second part of the entry is posted in a separate image. View the post, there are no responses

10/3/2010 4:27 PM I think this postcard was sent to my great grandmother in Luynchin (today Ludza)from her friend Serke/Sarke. Both were originally from Rokiskis but exiled during WW1. My friend who speaks Russian says the purple stamp is from the war censor.

I am interested to learn more about what both women went through during the war. Hopefully this postcard can tell us more.

Thanks for your help

Michael

16791 Do you recognize?

9/29/2010 4:01 PM Hello All
I am interested in any information on my great grandfather Adolph Greenberg and the variety store he operated on 1232 State Street in Bridgeport,CT. I have no photo's of him and wonder if he is in this photo, but have nothing to go by to know for sure. Interested in any and all information on my Greenberg line that originated from Dorohoi, Romania and then settled in Bridgeport.
