In a file labelled "Hamburg birth and cemetery records" in
the Jacob Jacobson Collection at the Leo Baeck Institute there is a
transcription >from the (presumably) Yiddish records of the Wandsbek
Cemetery in Hamburg. The transcriber used various abbreviations but
provided no key to what they mean. I have set forth below, verbatim,
the entries that relate to my HERSCHEL/HERSCHL/HIRSCHEL ancestors.
r Meir b c Zwi Herschel
PvM Benjamin Wolf b c Zwi Herschl
Gitel asht PvM Benjamin Wolf b Zwi Herschl
bch Simchah b PvM r Wolf
PvM r' Meir b r PvM r' Wolf Hirshel
Michael b PvM r' Meir Herschel
Fromet asht PvM r' Meir Herschl
I would greatly appreciate any help in deciphering these abbreviations
used by the transcriber.
