33802 Photo Identification

5/18/2014 5:56 PM My maternal grandparents, Louis and Lena Rosen (or Rossin?) and infant Yetta.(photo damaged). Any help with whether this photo could have been taken in homeland before Louis immigrated first by himself (Mar. 1905) then Lena and baby in Dec.1905? or perhaps taken upon Lena's arrival in NY with baby? Louis Rosen is from Balta, Ukraine, and Lena (Leike?) Teteleroit?, possibly from Kataczin (Zhabokrich, Ukraine). Any knowledge of dress would be helpful too. View the post with its 2 responses

33795 Do you recognize?

5/18/2014 5:55 PM This photo, dated May 4, 1936, shows the orchestra my late grandfather played in & conducted in Lodz before the war. My grandfather, Boruch KALUSZYNER, is standing on the left at the lectern (behind the man with the flute). My great-grandfather (my grandfather's father-in-law), David WAKS, is in the back with an instrument (a flute? a trombone?) held to his mouth, and a man called SZMULEWICZ is seated in the center front with a tuba. If you know anything about this band or recognize anyone in the picture, I'd be happy to hear from you! View the post, there are no responses

5/18/2014 5:54 PM Thank you for looking at this image of the birth certificate of Abraham Hirschhorn, the son of my great grand aunt Reisel Margulies.

I don't need the header of this form translated from German. I would appreciate a translation of the Polish handwriting. If you recognize any of these family names please feel free to drop me a line. I'm always on the lookout for my Margulies ancestors.

33793 Do you recognize?

5/18/2014 5:54 PM My mother dug this fabulous old picture up of my late grandparents with their Tsukunft group, the youth movement of the Bund socialist labor organization. It was taken in Lodz, probably in the late 1920s. The Yiddish sign is headed "Tsukunft Textile Circle, Y. Y. Pipikow." (I believe that Yosef Pipikow was a Bund founder/organizer.) My grandparents, Itta nee WAKS & Boruch KALUSZYNER, are seated together in the front row on the far right. If you recognize anyone in the group, I'd be happy to hear from you!

33794 Do you recognize?

5/18/2014 5:54 PM This is a photo of an orchestra in which my late grandfather played in Lodz before the war. My grandfather, Boruch KALUSZYNER, is third from left in the front row (behind the two reclining men), holding a clarinet. My mother has marked faces she recognized -- a Hersh LUSTMAN, a man with the surname SZPAN, another man she knows only as Shia, and another man called SZMULEWICZ. If you know anything about this band or recognize anyone in it, I'd be happy to hear from you! View the post with its 1 response

5/18/2014 5:54 PM The immigration record for Esther EDELBERG says she came to New York from Wilna to join her uncle. Her record is the last row on the manifest. The uncle's surname is not legible to me. Can somebody make out the handwriting?
