6/16/2013 4:23 PM Please tell me what the text says. It is about Josef Grossmann (and Abraham Jeiteles) and that they were born out of the wedlock.

I read German but it is hard to read the old German script

6/16/2013 4:22 PM I found this document on familysearch.org when I searched that website for information about my grandfather, Abraham Zoch (Zimmer). I think this document has information about Abraham's father, my great grandfather, Moses Zoch. I need someone to translate the Name and Event Place information -- which are both in Russian. It also would be helpful to know whether to contact a Family History Center for microfilm copies of the originals and, if so, how to do that. View the post with its 3 responses

6/16/2013 4:21 PM This badly faded page comes from a siddur that belonged to my grandmother. I suspect these are the dates of births and deaths of family members. If even a small section is clear enough to be translated, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

6/16/2013 4:21 PM This marriage certificate has already been uploaded here and the names therein have been identified as Groom: Lejzor WEJLAND, widower, Bride: Zelda Szulewiczowna CHUDY, widow, 28, living in Wohyn

My question: does that mean we can infer Zelda's maiden name was Szulewiczowna and her late husband was a Chudy? Did widows keep their married names or revert to maiden? Also, it has been suggested that "Srul" is actually Zelda's father's name and her last name is garbled as part of that long word. Any thoughts? Thank you very much.

6/16/2013 4:18 PM This is a divorce document issued in Hannover on 1910. Surnames are blanked out to keep privacy. I have some problems reading the old German handwriting.
I'd like to have a full text transcription of this hand-written document into German.
Many thanks in advance

25734 Tombstone

6/16/2013 4:18 PM Can anyone translate the Hebrew on this stone? I know it is really hard to read and I'm hoping to get a chance to go to the cemetery myself and take a better photo or at least copy it by hand. I'm most interested in learning his father's name, if possible. Also, any confirmation of the date on the bottom or his age would be great! My records indicate that he died in 1900 or 1901, but 5660 would be 1899.

Thanks!
Robin
