I am interested in a translation of the Hebrew portion of the inscription on
the tombstone that I have posted on Viewmate
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html as VM6564. The direct link is
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6564. The stone
marks the grave of Anschel (Anselm) MAIER (MAYER, MEYER) in the Wiesloch,
Baden cemetery. Anschel was born on 1 October 1779, in Nussloch according to
Berthold Rosenthal (collection at the Leo Baeck Institute). He died on 12
June 1854 in Rohrbach bei Heidelberg (now Heidelberg-Rohrbach).
I have looked at the above webpage and whilst it would appear that the
Hebrew is still recognisable, it would be probably easier to recognise if it
was transcribed >from the original photo.

The photo seems to be taken into the sunlight thus making it very difficult
to make out the carvings >from the webpage.
