Translation - Yiddish (in Hebrew script) to English (18 words on Viewmate) #general

Laurence Harris <laurence_harris@...>
 

Importance: Normal

I would appreciate help with a translation :
Yiddish (in Hebrew script) to English (approximately 18 words on
Viewmate).

I have a photo sent by Shymon (in Poland) to his brother
Anchel/Alec (in London). The photo shows Shymon with his wife and
two young children. Date around 1930. This family believed to
have perished in the Holocaust. On the back are some words of
Yiddish written in Hebrew Script.

Any names or place names would be important to me. For any place
names (eg towns/cities), I would be grateful to have the name
spelled phonetically in English, and also to know the Hebrew
letters comprising the name (eg Aleph, nun, .....). I think the
last three words may provide some clues.

The file is up on the Viewmate site
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/
in the "To View" section
- as file VM169

until Tuesday 19 December.

There is one word in the last three words that is, I believe a
name, and occurs on another photo. I have posted this one word
on Viewmate - file VM168. It may be clearer and help for
comparison in the translation.

Amy help would be very much appreciated
Many Thanks.

Since you wrote in May, your order would have been sent to the
Polish State Archives headquarters in Warsaw. (Starting on
July 1st, the on-line order form directs researchers to send
orders to the archives holding the records.)

If your order was for a record >from the City of Warsaw registers,
then you likely will have seen posts on JRI-Poland explaining
the delays due to fumigation and re-binding of registers at the
Warsaw Branch. This work has now been completed.

In any case, you should follow up on your request by sending a
letter (English or French is o.k.) to the Polish State Archives
headquarters - to whom you sent the original order - with a copy
of your original order and a copy of the acknowledgement you
received in July.

ViewMate: Lipman -- a Hebrew name? #general

A. E. Jordan
 

First thanks to everyone who looked at my VM posting #164. I did
not even have to post a notice about the picture. So many nice people
must be looking there regularly because I must have gotten a dozen
responses right away.

Everyone agreed on one of the names as being Lipman. Does anyone
recognize that as a Hebrew name? Maybe my Hebrew is more rusty
because I don't recall Lipman.

Thanks again.

Searching: Philip BERNSTEIN & Jennie FALK: 1931 marriage #general

LE01982@...
 

Seeking descendants for the following: Philip & Jennie BERNSTEIN

from the JewishGen "Rabbi Aaron Gorovitz Marriage Database" (in
Massachusetts), there is a 21 June 1931 marriage recorded for Philip
BERNSTEIN (age 32, asst. buyer, born in NYC) and Jennie Falk (age 30,
saleswoman, born in Russia). Their addresses at the marriage were
Allston, MA and Roxbury, MA respectively.

The parents of this wedding couple, all born in Russia, are: David
BERNSTEIN & Nettie ROSENHOLZ, and Abraham FALK & Bessie LEWIS.

from a search of the SSDI for Massachusetts, there is a "Jennie BERNSTEIN
(3 July 1900 to June 1972; residence at death was Lowell, MA)" whose birth
year seems to be "fit" this 1931 marriage. Of course, it may be a pure
coincidence.

My grandfather, Mayer ROSENHOLZ (1870-1963), had a younger sister, named
Nettie (DOB circa 1877; death date unknown), who married a "Mr. BERNSTEIN"
(first name never known by me). Family 'lore' says that Nettie and Mr.
BERNSTEIN (may have) had 5 children: Jessie, Rhoda, Helen?, and possibly 2
other sons - Philip BERNSTEIN may be one of these two.

My "Mr. Bernstein" (hopefully this is the 'David' mentioned above)
apparently worked for Swift & Company as a meat broker/salesman. While no
death date is known for him, he certainly died before 1929 and may have
died as early as 1909-10 in NYC. Nettie (as a widow) and her children
lived in the late 1920s in Brooklyn with her father, Jacob ROSENHOLZ (1838-
1929). The ROSENHOLZ family is >from Kalvaria or Suwalki gubernia.
