    Picked up an English-Yiddish dictionary from 1900, seems to have belonged to Rabbi Karlinsky. See photo with name here: . Does it make sense that he would have used the dictionary in the early 1900’s?

    In 1900, my grandfather zt’l was in Lithuania. Not at all likely that he we using it. However, if it was PUBLISHED in 1900, it would have been very appropriate that he was using it at some point after arriving in NY in the early 1920’s. Or it could have been his brother, Rav Yakov Karlinsky who was also in NY.

    It was printed in 1900. The name inside is Rabbi Sh Karlinsky. If theres a chance that handwriting is your grandfathers and you have other handwriting you can compare it to, let me know and I can try to get you a picture.
