Viewmate 6075: Who are these young women #general

Elsebeth Paikin
 

Does anyone recognize these two young women?
Date not known.
The photo was apparently taken in St. Petersburg.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6075
The photo was found in the album belonging to a family whose forebears came
from St. Petersburg. (Some of the surnames found in the family:
KVIATKOWSKI, SOFFER/SOFER/SOPHER, RUBINOWITZ, SHAITS, MEISTER,
GERSHEINBEIN, KEMACH).

Thanking you in anticipation

Does anyone recognize these two girls?

On the back of the photo is a handwritten greeting (Viewmate # 6073) dated

Brooklyn State Hospital #general

Diane Frankel <dlfrankel@...>
 

I have a relative who died in the Brooklyn State Hospital in 1928. I
believe it might have been a mental hospital.
Is there anyone >from that area know who might know if it still exists and if
so is it still called the Brooklyn State Hospital?
I would be interested in the address or at least the approximate location.

2. Klara Wolpert mar. Blum (Dwinsk/Daugavpils);
3. Caroline Clair Rabinowitsch mar. Michelsohn (Mitau/Jelgava).

Re: German Jewish name of Yetcha #germany

Dear Siggers and Michael,
Thank you, Michael, for the origin of Jette. I recently attended a burial
of my mother's cousin (by marriage) and while walking towards the new grave,
passed the grave of my mother's great aunt (by marriage), Jettchen MEYER.
Until then, I did not know where she is buried. Her date of birth on the
stone matches the information I had. I don't know much about her other than
that she came >from the Frankfurt area, survived (Theresienstadt?) and came
to the US after the Shoa. >from her grave I learned when she died.
I called the cemetery, trying to find out what other relatives she had or
other information, but they had no record of her, by name. I will soon
return there to get the location of the grave and try to find the
information that way. Any other suggestions? Thank you.
