I would be most interested in seeing the tombstones, as my father-in-law's
parents came >from Talsi. I am able to read and translate Hebrew, Yiddish and
German, so perhaps I can help in translations.

Subject: [courland] Talsi Jewish cemetery


Would someone on this listserv be interested in the information on the
gravestones of the Talsi, Latvia Jewish cemetery? A professor from
Lancaster
University in Great Britain and I have had recent correspondence. He has
photographs of all the legible gravestones. I am not very computer
literate
nor am I able to translate >from Hebrew, Latvian,Yiddish and German which
are
on the stones but I thought someone on the Latvian list serv would be
willing to look at the photos, translate and know how to post the
information to the JewishGen site. I don't think there are many stones
left
so it is a relatively small project.

Please contact me if interested or perhaps let me know who else would like
this information.

Sincerely,
Louise Hayden
