I was surprised to read something I hadn't known before. MyGGGrandfather
Nathan Mendel was born in Schroda, Prussia June 19, 1828. On the stone
there are hands making the "Nanoo-Nanoo" sign ...>from Mork and Mindy!
That's the only way to describe it! It also says "Maimonides Lodge
No8010PSI? Or something like that. What is this? My GGGrandmother's
stone- Rosalie Mendel says born in Craetz or Oraetz Prussia Sept 11,
Can anyone help me with these places or the significance of the hands?
