Wordless Wednesday ~ Sheva, Mordecai and Tziva

Another of the many 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.

This is my daughter Sheva and her husband
Her husband's name is Mordecai and
their child Tziva
I believe the person who wrote this is my husband's great uncle Usher Goldstein (or Yancu or Yancovitz), brother to Morris Goldstein (1897-1965).

(Siblings Morris, Max, and Anna immigrated to America from Romania; Usher and his brother Shmuel immigrated to Israel.)

Thank you to volunteers at the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston's "Help Day" in January 2014 for assistance in the translation.

November 17 update: And thank you to R. Shoshi Balbirer, member of Tracing the Tribe Facebook page who let me know the original image was upside down! (I have corrected it.)


  1. This is one of the more unusual family portraits I've seen. I hope you hear from this branch of the tree!

    1. This is a fun snapshot and it's great that the family saved it! Thanks for the comment.
