ViewMate- Request for Translation - Yiddish #general

Jay Sobel
 

Hello Friends:

I've posted a photograph of the rear of a postcard with yiddish writing.
It is on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM27355

The Yiddish writing is difficult to decipher.

Can anyone who is up for a challenge please provide a word for word
translation in English?

Apparently this is a message >from one of my late Father's Mother's siblings
to either his mother or her sister, his Aunt.

It is written on the rear of a postcard with his image.

If you are interested, that image of my Great Grandfather
Mendel Maniszewicz is posted on VewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM27354

Thank you,

Hello Friends:
I've posted a photograph. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM27356
Can anyone identify:
1) the country served by the soldiers in uniform
2) the rank of the two soldiers
3) the hypothesized date that the photo was taken
The seated soldier is my Great Uncle Mendel Blejwas.
I have some theories but would like the opinions of others who may know
considerably more than I.

mall discrepancy). We (a cousin, her uncle, a friend and me) have combed th=
rough the Maasdam's manifest looking for Benny's entry. No luck.=0A=0AThe m=
anifest for the Maasdam was "microphotographed" in 1944 with then current t=
echnology. I have noticed that many of the pages were not photographed in t=

number of these manifest pages the photograph starts at line 3 or 4 and/or=

Re: Uh, what did you say the name was? #general

Jeff,

I enjoyed your humorous post, however allow me to correct certain misconceptions.
Ellis Island opened Jane. 1, 1892. There was a fire in 1897 & Ellis island
re-opened in 1900.

Ellis Island Timeline
http://www.ellisisland.org/genealogy/ellis_island_timeline.asp

People entered the U.S. through many ports, including through Canada.

Regarding your gggp's names, I guarantee your gggm's name was not Rose if
she stayed in Europe. It was common practice for immigrants, when giving
data for U.S. vital records, to invent American sounding names.

Search for Julius' naturalization papers. Pre-1906 nats give little data,
but you never know.

In 1900 Julius in in Sterling with wife Leah & 4 children. In 1910 Julius
is a widow. In 1920 he is remarried to Rose & 2 more children. (Info found
at www.familysearch.org)

Some ideas:

Check the databases available at www.jewishgen.org to see if the name TRIPP
appears in any (Ukraine, Poland, Russia.) Keep in mind the ever changing borders.

Obtain as many U.S. vital records as you can, i.e. marriage, death, birth
records of Julius' children.

Julius d. 29 Nov 1928 & is at South Side Hebrew Cong, Forest Park, Cook, Illinois

Info found at www.familysearch.org

Look at the headstone (or get a photo.) There may be info there. For example,
my husband's ggf used the surname SOLON for over 50 years in the U.S. On
his stone it also mentions the original surname (SAKOLSKY.)

Check if Julius left a will. He may have left something to siblings or
nieces/nephews that still used the original surname (if TRIPP is not it.)
Even if they never came to the U.S Julius may have remembered them in his will.
I have seen that happen.

www.familysearch.org is a good resource.

www.ancestry.com is another good resource & is available for free on many
public library computers.

www.stevemorse.org has portals to Castle Garden passenger records, along
with many other databases.

Search old newspapers.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:List_of_online_newspaper_archives is
a site that lists digitized newspapers by geographic location, many are free,
some are not.

Genealogy can be a puzzle & it may take time to put all the pieces together.

Good luck in your search,
