need help translating Yiddish #translation

Tracie Schneider

I recently made phone contact with a second cousin I've never met.  Our grandmothers were sisters, and came to the US together from around Kiev in 1912.  The "new cousin" sent me a scan of a postcard she has, sent by our grandmothers to (we believe) their parents back home in Russia/Ukraine, probably around 1913 or 1914.  I believe it is in Yiddish, and would love to find someone who might be able to translate it for me as it would most likely contain some wonderful information about their new lives in the U.S.  If anyone can help me with that, I would be most appreciative. I can be contacted at the email address below and would be happy to pass along a copy of the scanned card.

My apologies if I haven't formatted this message correctly.  It's been awhile since I've posted here!

Unless you have reason to think the postcard contain very intimate information, you can upload it to JewishGen's Viewmate, and ask for a translation.
Images stay on the site for 7 days, and you can sometimes have more that one person attempting the translation, which usually ends up in giving you a fuller, better idea of what was written.
