Could someone please send me an email with Yiddish in it so I can work out
what particular language my Jewish ancestors are writing in. For instance,
there is a letter that has on the end of it, "drosh na bishlom kulam"
"bishlomrkh".
The one you are quoting is Hebrew. That line approximately translates to
"wishing you all well (well in this case is >from the root of sholom which means
peace, hello, goodbye, and is used in the phrase 'how are you')".
