ViewMate request for help with deciphering (not translating) a German CV and postcard #germany

Helen Singer <hsinger.t21@...>
 

Dear members

This is my first try at using ViewMate.

I would be really grateful for your help with the following documents on
ViewMate at the following addresses:

I don't need a translation, just a transcription; I understand German
but cannot decipher it in these documents.

The documents are a 2 page "Lebenslauf" >from my grandfather
Willy COHN - this seems to be partly in gothic German.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70372
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70373

the last known postcard >from my great uncle Max SINGER - this is
difficult to read. It refers to my grandparents Alex and Anne,
who had joined my father Peter in Farnham, and aunt Suse who
married and emigrated to Brazil:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70374

Please so submit any answers via the form on the ViewMate image page.

Thank you very much in advance. Helen Singer

Does anyone know of any epidemics that hit the Minsk area around 1900?
My great uncle as a little boy of 3 died. My grandfather reported that in
his insurance papers >from the Canadian Army. I believe it was what we call
childhood illnesses.
Thanks..

Yitzchak LAZAROV - London/Jerusalem - late 19th cent. #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Searching for information regarding Yitzchak LAZAROV (spelling
approx.) who came to live in Jerusalem in his later years and died
there. He had 12children with his first wife (or wives). He seems to
have been financially wealthy and was ultra-orthodox.

According to a possible source he married (as a widow or divorcee) my
great grandmother in Jerusalem probably sometime around the turn of
the century (19-20th).

Dear Rabbinical Researchers,

In connection to my own family's genealogical research, I am looking for
a tree which shows the pathway mentioned in this article
(https://hamodia.com/columns/day-history-17-tevesjanuary-4/):

"Harav Aryeh Leibish Lipshitz was born in Yaroslav in 5527/1767. His
father was Harav Chaim Asher. The family were descendants of the
Maharshal and Harav Mordechai Yaffe, the Levush."

I have reviewed several trees including those available on Geni, the
Jewish Encyclopedia, DavidicDynasty.com, and have not yet discovered how
R' Aryeh is descended >from the Maharshal and the Levush.

Can anyone direct me to another tree showing these lineages?

Thanks,
