Re: ViewMate translation request - Yiddish postcard #yiddish #translation


Lee Jaffe
 

I've reposted an enlarged and enhanced version of the text of a postcard (see link below), posted earlier, in the hope that it will be easier to read and translate.  As before, it is from a postcard to my great-grandfather Jacob Joroff in New Haven, CT, postmarked Brooklyn, 1911. There are photos of two men on the other side of the card and hope that the text says who they are.  Otherwise, I'd like to know the name of the sender and any other information that identifies family names or relationships. 

Jacob's wife Dora was part of a large Koshkin family from Snovsk, and perhaps Romny, in Ukraine.  But I haven't been able to discover Jacob's family or origins.   I'm hoping there might be a lead to understanding further family connections here.  Why would this card have been saved?
