Dear Andy,

The mother in the photograph may indeed have her head covered with
a _sheytl_ 'woman's wig.' Orthodox married women who cling to this practice=
often keep the _sheytl_ for dressing up and otherwise go about with a kerc=
hief over the hair.

There are religious sources around the turn of the century that decry
the recent (then) phenomenon of women "unfortunately" going without
their head covered and I presume the author of the source was
reffering to members of his (orthodox) community. Several decades
later in the USA (1940-50s), but amongst the same orthodox circles of
the above European rabbi there was also a certain trend , even among
orthodox rabbis that their wives did ot wear headcovering.

Today, at least in Israel, and amongst those inividual, called Baalei
Tshuva (people who aopted orthodoxy as their way of life though not
growing up so) there is a tendency to emphasize some kind of head
covering. My evaluation of it is that , similiar to a Kipa (yarmelke
for men) the head covering is more of a symbol of identification then
it is that men don't see their hair, since many of these women (at
least that I've come across ) don't cover their hair completely and
often just have a minimal covering.

The region was Austro-Hungarian governed at the time and they were
relatively tolerant towards Jews.

The mother in this photo is not wearing any head covering. I have seen
hundreds of shtetlach photos like this and the woman always wears a
head cover. Her husband is not present in this photo, so I have no
idea if he would be wearing a yarmulke in this photo (he was in
America at the time and the wife left a few years later with her
children).

After they migrated to the US, the family eventually became
assimilated (very typical in my family).

The shtetl, to my understanding was traditionally Orthodox. Can anyone
provide any clues?

NYC, Cuba, USSR: BERG, PUPKO #belarus

I have three images on ViewMate, all of them in Russian:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17524 is the inscription -
all of it, such as it is - on the back of a portrait taken in 1977.
I'm hoping that the word in front is a name, because I inherited this picture
from my father's cousin & she figured she didn't need to label any of her photos
because *she* knew who they were. [And actually, we had no idea she had any at
all, let alone so many].

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17529 is page 1 of a
letter written in NYC to my father's cousin in Havana, Cuba - Max BERG.
Max Berg sponsored her entry into the US. I know it starts Dear Vera... but then?

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=17530 is the rest of
the letter. Obviously I can read Max Berg's address [not to worry - he's been
gone for quite some time & no family member lives at that address any more]
& 'telephone' & his signature 'Max', but the closing?

Thanks for your help!

Alte Teitelbaum #ukraine

Carol Cohen
 

Alte Teitelbaum landed in NYC on 11/18/1902 when she was 15 after her
mother died. She stated on her immigration papers that she was coming
to stay with her sister who lived on Clinton Street. She listed my
grandfather (AB Waldmann) as her contact. My Grandmother, Rosa Sass
Waldman was a sister to Alte's mother not her sister. She listed
Wolica (near Podjace) as her former home, which was also the former
home of my grandfather. Alte lived with my grandparents for several
years, and moved with them to Texas in 1906. After a few years in
Texas her father arrived. He had remarried and come to the US with
his new wife and they wanted Alte to come live with them. I believe
they settled in Pennsylvania where some of the relatives lived. No
one seems to know what happened to Alte. My aunt and uncles called
her "Dollie". I have tried to find marriage records for Alte in
Pennsylvania. Is there anyone out there who recognizes her name?

Thank you,

Matia Massi #romania

Cousins shalom -

My grandfather - Henry GREENBERG - emigrated >from Vaslui, Romania to
Canada in 1903 and died in 1904. He is buried in Toronto at the
Roselawn Cemetery, Adath Israel - the section for Romanian Jews. His
tombstone is weathered and illegible. JewishGen Online Worldwide
Burial Registry lists his burial. There is no photo of the tombstone,
and it appears that the information is taken >from the records of the
Adath Israel Synagogue (the Rumaynishe Shul). His Hebrew name - Zvi -
is recorded correctly. However, his father's name is shown as "Matia
Massi". Does anyone have an idea as to what "Matia Massi" means?

Roselawn Cemetery, Adath Israel - the section for Romanian Jews. His
tombstone is weathered and illegible. JewishGen Online Worldwide
Burial Registry lists his burial. There is no photo of the tombstone,
and it appears that the information is taken >from the records of the
Adath Israel Synagogue (the Rumaynishe Shul). His Hebrew name - Zvi -
is recorded correctly. However, his father's name is shown as "Matia
Massi". Does anyone have an idea as to what "Matia Massi" means?

Thank you for your help.
