Wordless Wednesday ~ Ethel, Rachel and Roza

I have several photographs from my mother-in-law that came from her father's family in Romania and Israel in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. I am sharing them here in hopes of reconnecting with this branch of my husband's family.

The back is in Yiddish and I had help with the translation when I attended a "Help Day" meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston a couple of years ago. Let me know in the comments if you have anything to add about the translation.

My wife Ethel is here
and daughters Rachel and Roza

This would be the wife and daughters of Shmuel Lieb, the younger brother of Max Goldstein, my husband's grandfather. The following diagram shows the relationship. (Several other children of Isaac and Sarah are not listed.)

Other photographs of the family can be found at Shmuel Lieb's Family in Israel and Goldstein (or Yancu) Cousins in Israel.

    1. I'm very glad this group of photos was given to me before Hurricane Sandy flooded the den where they had been stored.

      Thanks for the comment.
