Help translating Yiddish on back of photos #translation

If you upload them to jewishgen, somebody will help you (if they are readable and short), there are many yiddish speakers here including myself.

Have you tried contacting the Rabbis in your area?
I had some emails sent to me from Belarus and Russia, in Russian and I contacted a local college here. I found a professor who had spent some years in Russia and was delighted to help for free. He said it was a chance to practice his Russian! 
If you call the universities, ask for the foreign language department or the librarian.

There are some apps that you can download too but it's easier I guess to have someone do it for you. If you don't have a college or Rabbi close to you, the closest one will do.

My cousin came across about 15-20 old photographs of her ancestors and most have what looks like Yiddish writing on the backs. There’s not a lot of writing, mostly just a few words, hopefully identifying who is in the photos. Is there anyone who could possibly help translate them? Thank you in advance.
