75429 Translation - Polish

10/9/2019 6:32 PM This postcard was written in 1923 from my great-grandfather in Poland to my grandmother in Brooklyn. I was able to translate some of the words using Google Translate and I believe it references an elevated train crash in Brooklyn on June 25, 1923 (there are pictures of it online).

Two names that I can see:
1 - Nowina (my great-grandfather's surname)
2 - Helena Goldhorn (I don't know who this is - might be a relative or family friend).

Can someone fully translate the postcard for me? I would be very grateful. Thank you.

75430 Translation - German

10/9/2019 6:32 PM Entry 52, looking for the full translation of words on this birth record. I can see it is for Salamon Binstok born May something 1889. I can see he is in house 117 in Salasze. That his parents are Kaufman Binstok (what other words around him, occupation?) and Chaja Sara Czermak daughter of Berish and Gittel. But there are other words around the names I'm not sure of? Thank you! View the post with its 3 responses

10/9/2019 6:32 PM These images are from census registers for Solinka and Zubensko, in Lesko County, originally created in the early 1930's. I can provide the full documents if needed. Each one is for a separate household, listing the residents who lived there at the time (my relatives, all Jewish).

These notations are in the "comments" section of each document, and there is also a line drawn through each person's name, written in the same red pencil as most of the notations. Since the date (10 July 1942) is during the time the Jewish communities in the area were liquidated, I assume it has something to do with the murders. However, not every person listed was still living there on that date -- some had died before the war, or moved away. Yet their names were still crossed off on that same date.

I've been told that the notations are not recognizable as Polish or German. I would appreciate if anyone can interpret what they mean.

10/9/2019 6:31 PM My nephew sent me this document that he recently found with his grandfather's immigration documents. He only recently learned of his Jewish ancestry and would like to know more.

I have attempted to translate the document using Google Translate but it will only translate some of the words and none of the abbreviations. The LDS word list does not contain any of the abbreviations. If someone could please help with a translation and tell us something about this document's purpose, it would be greatly appreciated.
