22336 Do you recognize?

5/15/2013 3:34 PM this photo is possibly from Centerville NY (current day Fallsbourgh - Sullivan County NY)

Its possible that the photo is of Molly Abramson Kissen, her husband Davis and their two youngest children Abe and Rose. Abe was born 1892 and Rose 1895. Rose looks to be about 10 years old. I believe the family lived in Centerville from 1903 until Davis's death in 1907.

Any idea who the guy on the ladder is or the older woman sitting next to Davis?

27322 Translation - German

5/12/2013 4:41 PM This card was set by Malke Sissel Sicherman in Berlin to her daughter Mathylda in Borysław sometime in 1909, before Mathylda’s wedding. It is submitted here in the hope that someone can read the two illegible words: “Die bestere Grüsse von Berlin sendet M Gottlieb [two illegible words] deine l. Mutter.” View the post with its 1 response
27315 Translation - Polish

5/12/2013 4:41 PM This document appears to record the marriage of my ggg grandfather. His name was Nachman Mider and my ggg grandmother Chaya/Chaja. A translation would be great as I have no information on her side. Internet records show Hirszow as a surname but all records have "?" next to them. If someone could take the time to translate for me, I would truly appreciate it and then I may be able to find out more about her family. Thank you. View the post with its 2 responses

27314 Translation - Polish

5/12/2013 4:40 PM The first paragraph is the end of entry #36 that appears to record the birth of Wolf Mider. It has been signed by my ggg grandfather Nachman Mider. Entry #37 appears to record the birth of another child, the details of which are unknown at the moment. It has also been signed by Nachman Mider. If anyone could translate for me I would really appreciate it.
Thank you
