Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Yahrzeit tablet-Hebrew translation #lithuania

J Weisman

Dear Siggers,

I am unfamiliar with Yahrzeit tablets, and wonder if it is at all
possible that they reveal details such as village, synagogue, cemetery,
etc. I have a working translation of the person in this tablet, believed
to be my gg grandmother Ita KACYZNSKI (married name DOGOVSKI) who lived
in Seirijai Lithuania. Is there nothing to indicate her or her father's
surname? And is there any way to translate 10th AdarII 1908 into a
Gregorian date?

This is the full tablet:
