29166 Translation - Russian

9/22/2013 4:15 PM This writing is on the back of a photo of a man. Part of it was ripped when someone pulled it off a photo album. The man appears in another photo with my grandfather's niece and is probably her husband. The writing on the back of this photo may hold a vital clue to his name and to finding part of my family. I would appreciate any attempt to decipher the writing that is visible and to reconstruct the entire message. View the post with its 1 response

29172 Translation - Yiddish

9/22/2013 4:15 PM This is the second page of the 3 page letter written by Meir BALAN, my great-grandaunt's husband from Buenos Aires to my SZEJN family in NYC (originally from Warsaw). The handwriting appears very neat, so I would appreciate the full translation, hoping it'll help me find out more about the BALAN family, of which precious little is currently known.

28917 Translation - Russian

9/22/2013 4:13 PM I believe this is the second page of a document, but I'm working with about a twenty Cyrillic pages, and it's not at all obvious which page should pair with this one. Since the posting limit is five images per week, the likelihood is that first and second page won't appear simultaneously on ViewMate for translation. I apologize, but I don't know of any workaround. I would appreciate translation of as much content as possible. Thanks so much. View the post with its 1 response

9/22/2013 4:11 PM I would like to know the date of the image and make connections with descendants of the people. My mother Rachel Katsev Press indicated the following: Seated left to right: Feige Laya Press, Uncle Weinberg, Aunt Sprinzer, an unnamed relative(perhaps a mother to Eva), a friend.
Standing: cousins (unnamed)
The cousins emigrated to South Africa. I would like to know who they were and where they went.

9/22/2013 4:11 PM This photo was taken at an Ostroff Family Circle meeting in Brooklyn N.Y. I can identify all but 3 of the family members. The oldest member is Frume (Fanny) Ostroff (2nd row, 4th person from the left) my grandmother. Her sons Max and Mendel and their wives, her daughters Rose and Pearl are in the photo. The unknowns are 1) 2nd row, third person from the left. Her given name is Gitl or Gertrude. She lived in Washington Heights and worked in the garment district. I would like to find out her surname. I was told she was related to Frume. 2)Her son Jack, standing, 3rd man from the left and 3)his wife Harriet, sitting 1st row, 3rd person. Frume's mainden name was Mariaskin. Her brother Jacob (Jankow) emigrated and changed his surname to Marin. Their parents were Lazar (Eliezar) Mariaskin and Sara Zalkin. Frume's husband died in 1912 in Brooklyn, His father was Yehuda Lev Ostrov. All came from Vitebsk, I think. View the post, there are no responses
