Simon Hock's book [Die Familien Prags] #austria-czech

Henry Sinai <hmsinai@...>

Dear Siggers,

Simon Hock's book [Die Familien Prags. [Epitaphein des Alten Juedische
Friedhofs in Prag] is full of abbreviations.

Can anyone explain what the Hebrew abbreviations Resh"Bet; Resh
Chet"Sameach and Yud"Nun mean after a persons name?

Each entry has a number associated with it. What is this number?
If it is a catalogue number, where can the catalog be seen?

The Hebrew entries do not mention family names - how did Hock associate
the gravestones with particular families?

Thank You

Henry Sinai
