Viewmate: Translation from Romanian & Russian - Samuel Brofman photo/postcard 1913 #bessarabia

Pamela Weisberger
 

I've just posted a record on Viewmate (#33729) for which I'd
appreciate a translation. It appears to be dated December 29, 1912.
The link is:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33729

I'm not sure of the language. Might be Romanian or Russian -- or
both. (There is handwritten text and a stamp which is definitely in
Cyrillic.)

The photo on the reverse side is of Samuel Brofman born in Bessarabia,
who moved to Odessa. He may be wearing a soldier's uniform. Sometime
between the date of this photo and summer 1913 Samuel found his way to
Brazil and eventually America.

If you can provide a word-for-word translation, it would be most appreciated!

Need help with writing on Ship manifest #general

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I'm trying to read the last name of the contact person on a ship
manifest. Here's the image:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/26790684@N05/14006357617/in/photostream/

The name I'm trying to decipher is "Uncle Stanley ?????", "5 Saratoga
Ave, Brooklyn, NY"

The writing is very clear, but I have not a clue as to what the first
few letters of the person's surname is.

Bonus points, for anyone that can actually locate the person on a census
or city directory! Thanks.

Barcelona Refugee Card for Jenny LEVY #general

Liz Hanellin
 

Hello JewishGenners,

Are there any experts out there on the Barcelona DP/Refugee Cards >from the
"Munich, Vienna and Barcelona Jewish Displaced Persons and Refugee Cards,
1943-1959 (JDC)" database?

I am researching the fate of my great aunt, Jenny LEVI/LEVY (nee FRANKENTHALER,
Feb 25, 1898, in Untereisenheim, Germany). She moved to Frankfurt in 1939 with
her husband Ludwig and I have lost any definitive trail of her after that (she
is not in the Gedenkbuch), although I have a record suggesting that Ludwig was
killed in 1942 (I can't confirm this yet, since I don't have his birthdate and
there were many Ludwig LEVI/LEVYs).

I found a Refugee Card (Card no. 558) for a Jenny LEVY who was detained in
Gerona and then Barcelona, Spain (presumably after crossing the French/Spanish
border). The card indicates that she was put in the charge of the French as of
1/7/43 (which I interpret as July 1, and not January 7, based on the other
dates on the card) and the last entry on the card says "Partie Afrrique du
Nord, CRI 17/4/44", i.e., she left for North Africa on 17/4/44 (April 17,
1944), via the Red Cross International. Unfortunately, according to the
International Committee of the Red Cross website, research for their WWII
archive is suspended at least until 2016 during a conservation and scanning
project.

Without access to these archives, does anyone know if there a way of tracing
that departure to North Africa to find out which specific country it went to
and whether there is an existing manifest that might indicate information about
the refugee/passenger in addition to her name (such as nationality and/or
birthdate)? Or, are there any other records relating to this group of refugees?
By the way, I have also tried contacting the JDC, but have not heard anything
back yet.

Thanks in advance!
