11/16/2022 11:58 AM I would appreciate a translation of the text of this letter, especially any dates, names or places mentioned. It has obviously been kept in my family for a reason, so I am hoping it will offer a clue.
Thank you very much.

100512 Translation - German

11/16/2022 11:58 AM I believe that this is the death record of my 5xGGF known as Joseph Moses Levy or Israel Moses. I chagrined to acknowledge that I am not sure if this is the correct record or even if it is in German. If this is the correct record I would appreciate as full a translation as possible and if it is not the correct record I would appreciate a knowledgeable person telling me what is is (even the language). Many thanks and sorry for my own lack of clarity. Jed Brickner View the post with its 1 response

11/16/2022 11:57 AM Great-grandfather. Was very vague about his past. Was born either 1895 or 1875, depending on the teller of his story. He said in some immigration documents that he came from Lithuania, or Documents he says Russia. I found 1 that said Norway. The surname was changed because he did not speak English when he arrived, so original probably sounded somewhat similar. He carried a Bible written in Yiddish. He arrived at the Laredo, Texas pont of entry in 1915 I believe, and lived in Wisconsin before settling in Indianapolis, Indiana. He claimed to arrived with 2 brothers. He served in WWI, his surviving dog tags showed his name as Antonio Crissen. I believe his family was Jewish, as my father states he spoke fluent Yiddish with a neighbor, but he himself attended a catholic church in Indianapolis. View the post with its 1 response

100502 Translation - Tombstone

11/16/2022 11:57 AM I found this photograph among the papers of my cousin, a Holocaust survivor who died in 2019. He lived in Kovno and Gargzdai, Lithuania, during the Holocaust and later immigrated to New York. He visited Lithuania in the 1990s when the photographs were taken.

Can anyone translate the tombstone on the left (I believe that is the important one)? I'm wondering if my cousin took the photograph because the tombstone was for a member of our family, either the Olschwanger family or Birman family.

100474 Translation - German

11/16/2022 11:56 AM A friend of mines thinks she has jewish origins and follows a conversion to be accepted in the jewish community.

She sent me the birth certificate of her maternal grand-mother.

Presently Diemeringen is a french city, but in 1887, it was a german one.
On the birth certificate the religion of the parents is written. Can you read what is written for the religion (2 lines). It's very difficult for me to read it as it"s gothic german

Thank you for help.
