I would appreciate a full translation.
This is a postcard written by my husband's grandfather, Adolf, from NYC to his wife Fredericke and daughters who were in Baden, Austria. Who are the three men? Fredericke's mother's maiden name was Burk. The card closes naming his three daughters, Kinderl (litle children) Volinku (Valerie) Amerle (Anna) and Gretherl (Margaret) and is signed Papa.
