Page 1. I had this Translated by the Chabad Rabbi. He could not translate all the words/names. They maybe Russian written in Yiddish? My Grandmother came to America when she was 17. She had Parents Faige and Itzik and 2 sisters Machla and Golda. (No Brothers?) The writer was her cousin not a sister.Confused by Our mother? Your Brothers? Your Daughter?

This letter's contains greetings for the new year.

Also: "Regards to Blume and Ete, they also have a relative ["kreive" phonetically written]who stayed alive, Glode's Peshe, in Tashkent. And Elke's daughter went away to Poland."

"My husband and my children greet you all.
My oldest daughter works for a doctor just outside Leningrad, in a health post.
Send our greetings to Hirshel, Hertse will write to him. I grew completely unaccustomed to speak Yiddish and that is why I also don't write well.
Send our greetings to Blume and Ette. One of their relatives has survived: Peshe Goldes in Tashkent. And also one daughter of Elke, who went to Poland.
Remain all of you healthy and happy and may you all have a good and quiet year.
From all of us to you: a good year!

The one in the embroidered dress is the youngest, Lilye, and the other one is Reyke. She is already a doctor. May they all be in good health."

Hope this has helped you.
