JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen VM 1105 - father's name #general


Paul Silverstone
 

Thank you to all who took the trouble to help decipher the odd
Hebrew characters on the gravestone of Rebecca Silverstone.
Most felt it was a "typo" by the stonecutter and that the first
letter was a daled thus making the name a familiar one - Dov,
rather than one that seemed meaningless, i.e. Hov or the like.
Oddly, I have just come across the lady's death certificate where
her father's name is given as Benjamin!!
Thanks again.
Paul
