29444 Translation - Hebrew

10/9/2013 4:16 PM These two signatures in Hebrew/Yiddish are from the 1906 U.S. naturalization document of Abraham Ruche, an immigrant from Soroca, Bessarabia, to Philadelphia, Pa. The first one is his brother, Bernard, serving as witness.

I am hoping to learn the family's original surname (Ruche is obviously an abbreviation) and wonder if it is revealed in the Hebrew/Yiddish signatures.

Thanks in advance.

29445 Do you recognize?

10/9/2013 4:16 PM The pictured man is my biological grandfather. My grandmother was married with 2 children, and while her husband was in Canada preparing the family for immigration, my father was conceived in her union with this man -- her true love -- in 1932 before she left for Canada herself in 1934. He was described as "Jewish". His name is unknown to me, though it MAY be one that could be Anglicized as "Max Drake". He was apparently "assassinated" by the end of WWII in circumstances probably related to him being Jewish. I would like to know his name. The 3 photographs I have of him link him and my grandmother to Cernauti/Chernovitz, Bukovina Romania during the late 20's to early 30's. View the post, there are no responses

29448 Translation - Russian

10/9/2013 4:16 PM This is an 1875 Russian census record for my ancestors Nukhim-Gersh Gitarts and Chaim-Borukh Gitarts.

I have the names, patronymics, and ages, but am interested in the other columns of information, especially the third column and the last column.

Thanks in advance for your help.

29435 Translation - Polish

10/9/2013 4:14 PM This is an extract from the official government gazette of Augustow Gubernia. The document mentions my ancestor Mowsza Abramajtys (line 9). I believe it regards real estate in Suwalki that was being auctioned to satisfy unpaid taxes.

You will need to zoom in to read the text.

I am not, of course, requesting a translation of this long document, but I would be grateful to know its general subject matter and how it relates to Mowsza Abramajtys. Was he one of the tax delinquents? A bidder at the auction? A tenant of the confiscated real estate? And what does the figure in rubles next to his name mean?

Thank you in advance for your help.

29409 Do you recognize?

10/9/2013 4:14 PM This photograph was taken in Zagare in ~ 1928 and shows a group of people from Zagare aged in their very early 20s.

My father Hirsh SEGAL is top row third from right.

Hirsh left for Melbourne Australia in 1929.

Does anyone recognise any of the others in the photograph?

Regards from Melbourne.
