Deciphering Raduraksti record #latvia


nk
 

Hello,

I recently joined this SIG group. I found a death record in the
Raduraksti website. I was aware of the translated record on
JewishGen. I think this man was my ggf. There were at least 3 men
with the same name in his shtetl. He was >from Ponidel, Lithuania, and
died in Bauska. I found the handwritten record in both Russian and
Hebrew. When I enlarge the font to read the Hebrew, I lose clarity and
cannot read the writing. I cannot even read the typewritten titles of
the columns.

1) Does anyone have any recommendations on how to obtain a clearer,
legible copy?
2) Is there a Jewish cemetery in Bauska? Are their legible headstones?

This is my ggf's information: His name was Feivish Reuven Zelbovich
the son of Leib. The Raudraksti website lists the name Rubin
Zelbovich, son of Leib. He died November 24, 1897

Thank you for your help.
