31548 Translation - German

12/29/2013 3:53 PM This is the first page of an Austrian passport issued to Hersh Wurman in 1900. I can read the printed text and his name and place of residence (Radautz, Bukowina) but I'd appreciate translation of the other handwritten words (the entries for Charakter and Beschaeftigung and the words under Bukowina). Thank you. View the post with its 1 response

31541 Do you recognize?

12/29/2013 3:52 PM Does anyone recognize this woman from Braila Romania? It looks like a bride (dress and flowers etc), and based on the Victorian shoes, may be dated around 1890's or so? This photo belonged to Lena Schwartz b. 1900, and her mother was "Matilda Schwartz" (Malka Schvartz, daughter of Estera/Esther). Malka died c. 1901. Do you recognize Malka, or someone else that looks like this from Braila? View the post, there are no responses

12/29/2013 3:52 PM photo is embossed on front lower left "Foto-Lux, Iasi". This could be a Schwartz or Josephson family member. Might be the same woman as in the previous bridal photo that I posted? Looking for family of Lena Schwartz, Maltilda/Malka Schwartz or Estera/Esther Schwartz. Is this any of those women, or someone else? View the post, there are no responses
