Translator's Note: The titles and surnames have been transcribed/translated to the best of my ability. Some surnames are written phonetically as it was difficult to transcribe from the Yiddish. Where family names were repeated in a list, the name appears once in this transcription. My apologies to any families whose names I have misspelled.
