Do you recognize?
posted: 4/1/2007

My family came from KOVNO, RUSSIA (Kaunas, Lithuania) and lived in
BALTIMORE. On back of picture: Charles Leach, 17 E. Baltimore St.
Photographer Charles Leach was at this address in city directories for
1890-1892 and 1894. He was at 19 E. Baltimore St. in directories for
1887-1889, 1893, and 1895.


Dated 1929 from Lithuania,
Kaunus or Merkine. Can anyone identify the people or the city? On the
is a Yiddish message saying "With gratitude to the
Kozevnikus family from us and our friends." Alman.. and then
something indecipherable.

She had two sons - Raffael and Sima ... With Raphik we used to walked together to the kindergarten and swimming pool, but then our paths split, he went to the Lithuanian school, I in Russian ... I would like to find them, I know that they moved in the 1990s to Tel Aviv..... there may be some community of people from the certain cities of Lithuania, in Tel- Aviv?  any ideas How can I find them ?
