The following message is being sent to all JewishGen mailings.
Snowbound cemeteries are now cleared for visiting and genealogical sleuthing!
Be sure to include your camera, hedge clippers, notebook,
pencils, whisk broom and Rabbi Joshua Segal's "Field Guide to
Visiting a Jewish Cemetery"....the quintessential tool for unlocking
tombstone inscriptions, decoding dates and deciphering many of the
more common inscriptions.
Rabbi Segal's soft cover book is a necessary "bring-along" whether
you are visiting a cemetery in North America, Europe or Israel since
the inscriptions are similar. The book is available in the
JewishGenMall at a special conference discounted price of only $18 plus S& H.
visit www.jewishgenmall.org and enter the title, A Field Guide to
Visiting a Jewish Cemetery, or the product code JCP101
Happy hunting and successful sleuthing <g>
