This is the back of a photo that was sent to my grandparents. We think it is from my grandmother's family. We are not sure of her last name (maybe Uswinsky), or the town they lived in, maybe Vinnytsia (they pronounced it Winnitzer). We are trying to find my grandparents families. My grandfather's name was Bercu (Beryl) Litvac. Any help with this translation would be greatly appreciated

2/18/2016 1:01 AM This file and file 45585 are both in Yiddish, not Hebrew. Upload them to the Yiddish section where you might eventually get more help. Script difficult to read fluently.
"Dear sister and brother-in-law,
I send you my photo. I wanted to send you my photo but didn't have a second one so I took it from a big one and sent it to you. We ask you a reply with photos of yourselves. ...(can't make out sentence before last, the script is too light) Greetings from ...(corner torn off) Tzivia".

Hope this helps you.
2/18/2016 8:01 AM Lainie, this is written in Yiddish, not Hebrew. The second word is "Shvester" -sister. Unfortunately, I can't translate it.Regards, Aleksandra
