19533 Translation - German

7/13/2011 6:07 PM Dear all,

this is the marriage certificate of ? Grünbaum and Resi Grünbaum. I cannot understand a few things in it.
First of all, the firstname of the groom.
All hebrew texts (names, dates)
The hometown of the bride.
And the content of the last two columns. As I saw it is releated to the bride's hometown, maybe something about the wedding what was probable there and not in Ótura

Thank you for any suggestions.

19534 Translation - Yiddish

7/13/2011 6:07 PM I would appreciate it if someone could help me with a word for word translation. This is the back of a photograph of my Aunt Toby/Toba/Terez Szabo in 1945, not long after she escaped from a German death march. View the post with its 1 response
19535 Translation - Yiddish

7/13/2011 6:07 PM I would appreciate it if someone could help me translate these words from the top of a photograph of my grandfather Czalel/Betzalel Szabo. My very dim memory of the hebrew alphabet (learned almost 50 years and since forgotten) suggests that this may simply be my grandfather's name, but I was only aware of two names, and a third word appears on this photo.

Thank you in advance for your kind help.

19536 Translation - Yiddish

7/13/2011 6:07 PM I would appreciate it if someone could help me with a word for word translation from Yiddish to English. This is the back side of a photograph of my grandfather, which I believe was taken in Israel in 1957. The top portion of this writing makes reference to 1877, which is the year my grandfather was born.

Thank you in advance for your kind help with this.

19527 Translation - Yiddish

7/13/2011 6:05 PM This is purported to be the marriage record of Haskel (Yekhezkal) Korenman and his wife Haya Sura, the daughter of Ios, in Shargorod. The right margin of the document has been cut off, apparently by archivists many years ago, so I am showing the Russian/Ukrainian portion (on the left) as well. I would like to have name spellings confirmed, and to know the actual text of the portion where 320 of something is paid and witnesses are named. View the post with its 1 response

19518 Translation - Yiddish

7/13/2011 6:04 PM The Russian indicates the birth of twins, Hazkel and Malka Ruhlia Karinman, in Shargorod 13 Dec. (18 Tevet) 1847. Parents are Shulim Abramovich and his wife Alta. Bris was 20 Dec. (25 Tevet), and names are given for officiants: Tov Shehman, Leiba Rantburg, and Nuhtir Raizman. I believe Hazkel to be Yekhezkal, Shulim to be Shalom, Karinman to be Korenman; Alta was a daughter of Yankel. Can someone confirm the Yiddish entries? View the post with its 1 response

7/10/2011 4:16 PM Hi,
I have been trying to verify the maiden name of my 2nd great grandmother. My Russian is terribly rusty. I believe it says Friedman? Would anyone like to take a stab at deciphering the Russian script? Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Zev
