Dear All

Following translation of the headstone of my g-grandmother (Sarah SALISBURY) buried London/UK 1945, I have been advised the Hebrew reads as Sara Ita daughter of Rabbi Mordechai Shlomo. This information is new to me and I am posting to ask if anyone has come across these persons previously or if there might be a more targeted way to identify the family or place of origin for a Rabbi - or is it the case that rabbinical records are simply an undifferentiated part of general databases/record collections.

The Russian/Polish origins of this side of the family remain unknown to me although the possible 1895 birth record of my grandmother CHANA SALZBERG (Annie Salisbury), records her mother as Sara Lea and "Mothertown" as Zawadow/Horyniec. I dont know if this is the same as Horyniec-Zdroj which is about 1 mile away >from the current border with Ukraine. I believe Zawadow is a different place and near Belchatow (close to Lodz). My grandmother's record on JRI-PL is catalogued under Jaworow AGAD Births 1877-96 Lwow Wojewodztwa/Ukraine. I cannot (yet) find a record for either her mother, father (possibly Israel Moses FISCHLER as per the above record for Annie) or the Rabbi.

Helpful hints much appreciated
