From the mercurial Shelley Mitchell, this fine piece of photography….
Here’s what Shelley has to say about the photo: “These are my maternal grandparents, Beile “The Belle of Kolomea” Terner and her (then finance and later) husband, Zalman Konigsberg. This is the Galician side of the family.”
Czernowitzers… I am in contact with a fellow named Alejandro Kinsbrunner whose grandfather was born in Czernowitz in 1901. Indeed his gf’s birth record has been transcribed and is available through Daniel Horowitz’s database.
The problem is that my correspondent is trying to re-establish his Austrian citizenship, and the Austrian authorities will only take certified proof that the proper documentation exists. He has in his possession a copy 1938 document from the then Romanian govt. to that effect which can’t be used as it is not an ‘original’. I have posted this document on the Blog at: http://ehpes.com/blog1/?p=8321
Is there any way to get an official document from either the Archives or the municipal government to the effect that 1901 birth of this fellow’s gf was properly registered in 1901?
It seems to me likely that others have run into similar problems — so, what to do?

From David Rosner:
Dear Aunt and Uncle (Edy und Gaby Weissmann), dear fellow members of the
As promised I come to you with a recently found photograph, which was deeply
dug into in my beloved father Charles ROSNER’s things – and to be more
precise in one of the more or less preserved cardboard suitcases that
belonged to my grandparents, and which remained all over the years.
As you can see it is about Edy Wagner’s class, I wonder if I read right :
“Zur Erinnerung von meiner III. Volksschulklasse im Juli 1920″…
But I may be wrong.
I hope you all like this as much as I did when I found it !… Unless you
maybe had it already.
Greetings from Normandy.
