Request for ViewMate translation from Russian #translation
I'd love to have a translation for a brief note on the back of a family
photo, c1909. I believe the handwriting is Russian. I've had the photo
for some time, but just learned that a cousin has the original, which
has a note on it. I'm so excited, because I think it will help me figure
out who's in the photo. I believe it is my ggparents and gparents
(Finkelstein) and my gggm with her mother and sister (Sukenik).
Also, if you have any guesses about who might be able to afford a family
portrait like this--was it expensive in the early 1900s in Russia/Poland?
Thanks so very much
