I was wondering if anyone might recognize the person in the photograph. I can't quite make out the first name as Jadia or Jaroslawa Marska who died in 1977, age74 yrs. There is also the possibility that the last name may be spelled with an i at the end. Maybe there might be someone related to a Marska(i) that can get me connected.

You need to make the photo reverse bigger. Much bigger.

This is the best I can do in making the reverse bigger. Please forgive me for the quality. The printing says Ja**ia Marska / Klein cousin of father from grandmothers' side. Died 1977 age 74 yrs old. There is also another name of Jaroslawa. I am not sure of the last 3 letters.

Even when I download the image and then enlarge... it can't be read.

If you can't get the shot in focus... try changing the contrast... or do it in black and white. It might make it easier to read.

When I click on the image... it gets blocked.

Please accept my apologies. The program I use just can't seem to handle what you are asking for. I have tried it while off line and had no luck. That is why I included what it said on the back as part of the message post for better clarification. I use Microsoft Picture it photo 2002 program.

Please accept my apologies.

Don't be daft :) I wasn't having a go.

Maybe, photocopy the image. If you change the contrast it might make the lettering clearer... plus you should be able to enlarge it.

I think I may have had some luck, but am not sure. Here is the another attempt at the reverse side. Thanks again for being patient with me on this.

The best I can manage is Jas****

One of the letters has a loop: either j, g, y

You'll have to wait for more replies

Thanks all for the help. I finally made contact with a Klemm clan member and the writing was explained. That also includes the other posting I have made in regards to the Klemm family. Now both sides have some catching up on 30 years.

I would read the text on the the image as "Julia Muska/ Klein. Cousin of father from Jaroslawa (?). Grandmothers side. Dead 1977".

Jancia = Janina

or Julia


yep, for me it's also Muska or... MILSKA! ;)

Thanks anyways for all your help. I have made contact with a relative that recognized the photo and was able to inform me as to whom the deaceased was and what relation this individual was to me.

So, to the others that are looking for cpnnections, be patient. It will happen when it is least expected. That connection gives me the needed excuse to visit.
