Hebrew Gravestone Translations #general
Justin Kirk Houser <jkhouser84@...>
Good afternoon, everyone,
I have a question concerning Hebrew gravestone inscriptions. I am the
cemetery project chair for the Clinton County, Pennsylvania, Genealogical
Society, a non-profit organization, and we are currently recording cemetery
inscriptions throughout Clinton County, PA for posterity.
At the moment, we are reading Beth Yehuda Cemetery in Lock Haven, PA, which
dates to the late 1800s and is still in use. Many of the markers are in
Hebrew. We are looking for someone who can help us translate the Hebrew
inscriptions on many of the markers for a reasonable fee. I have digitally
photographed the Hebrew markers and can email or mail them on a CD to
anyone who can help. There are probably about 200-300 such markers. A few
are entirely in Hebrew and some appear to have only a few letters in
Hebrew. Most are somewhere between this range.
I look forward to any direction anyone can provide in this regard.
