8/17/2014 4:20 PM This document reports the marriage of Szmul Luria Mariamploski and Dwora Ochron Abramowicz in Suwalki. It also appears to be a pre-nuptial agreement, and it legitimizes the birth of two children who were born prior to the marriage - Shayna, born 12/25 Apr 1876 and Uria, born 10/22 Sep 1877. I obtained this document from the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, during the recent IAJGS conference. I obtained a rough outline of its translation; I would appreciate a full translation.

35232 Do you recognize?

8/17/2014 4:20 PM Just a shot in the dark. Does anyone recognize this woman? My best guess is that she is the daughter of my great grand uncle Harry Bloom and aunt Rosy (nee Berger). Harry was born 10 October 1883 in Russia (Kovno?), immigrated with his father Levin (Yehuda Leib), brother Louis, and sister Rose to Cleveland in about 1895. Rosy was born in 1890 in Austria, immigrated to Cleveland in 1904. They married on 25 February 1917 in Cleveland. Not sure exactly when they moved to Los Angeles, but there were there by 1942. The back of the picture says "1944, in front of our house, 2813 1/2 Buckingham". This address is very close to an address for Harry and Rose Bloom in a city directory.
