Seek Brooklyn City Directories. #germany

Tom Krakauer <tkrakauer@...>
 

I have spent most of my time researching my German ancestors, but
have recently learned that several members of my MAYER family were in
Brooklyn >from 1894-1913.

Earlier generations were butchers, but someone made enough money to
establish a chain of department stores in the Pfalz region - Geschwister Mayer.

Are the Brooklyn City Directories or Commercial Directories available
on line, or is there someone in the NYC area who I could retain to do
the research. Thank you,

VIEWMATE: VM7064-5-6 - German Translation of 1911 Marriage Certificate from Galicia #ukraine

Ganot <o_ganot@...>
 

Dear All,

I have posted at the ViewMate the Marriage Certificate of my grandparents,
written in German.
My grandparents got married in 1911 in or near Skole, East Galicia
(presently west Ukraine).

The Marriage Certificate is comprised of three separate parts:

Top of the front side:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7064

Bottom of the front side:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7065

Rear side:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7066

After their marriage my grandparents settled in Berlin, and in 1935 they
made Aliyah.
The text and stamps at the rear side of the document were added only in 1925
in Berlin.
The purpose of this later addition is not clear to me. Explanation will be
welcome.

In case the present resolution is not sufficient, higher resolution file of
the document is available.

Please respond privately.

Any help in translation and explanation will be highly appreciated.

Shabbat shalom,

The School Certificate was scanned in two separate parts:

Top part:
