Can anyone translate this note?  We don't know who wrote it.  Most likely one of my husband's grandparents.  

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

All the Hebrew months and holidays are misspelled, so it was probably written by a woman who didn't know Hebrew, likely 'Mechel's widow.

It reads:
My father's Jahrzeit is 10 days in the first Adar.
My grandmother's Jahrzeit is 4 days after Purim, 18 days in Adar.
My mother's Jahrzeit is 4 days before Shavous, 2 days in Sivan.
Mechel's Jahrzeit is 18 days in Kislev.

Thank you very much for this translation.  

Knowing that Mechel's Jahrzeit is on this list - indicates that YES - you are correct - it must have been written by his widow!!

Thanks again -
