JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen ViewMate translation request - Yiddish with extensive use of German #general


Ellen Caplan
 

I have re-posted a sample of a letter >from amongst a dozen letters that
were written by my great grandfather, Litman Eisenberg, >from Mielnica,
Galicia to his daughter Sarah Klinger in Montreal in the 1920s. The
letters are written in Yiddish in a difficult to read handwriting, and
are particularly challenging as the Yiddish includes extensive use of
German and Hebrew, including religious references. So far, no one that I
have shared the material with has been able to decipher the text. I would
very much appreciate it if someone could "break the code" so to speak.

A link to all of the letters is included on the JewishGen’s Uscie
Biskupie page (KehilaLinks) under Documents and Vital Records:
Correspondence, Eisenbergs in Mielnica.

The sample is on ViewMate at the following address:

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Many thanks.
