Re: Searching for PHILIPS family possibly from Suvalk (Suwalki) Area -Translate Family Name from Grave Marker? Philips in US #poland #lithuania #translation
Susan Beecher <s_beecher@...>
I posted previously asking about family members possibly from the Sulwaki area of Poland/Lithuania whose US name was Philips. It was suggested to me that the grave stones' Hebrew writing could show the family's original name. My friend, for whom I am searching, was able to get grave photos from the Mount Judah cemetery in New York.
I am hoping that you kind and helpful people might be able to help me with this. I will attach two grave photos to this post. I have not been able to locate this family on any ships coming to the US nor in any of the databases in JewishGen most likely due to this name change.
Abraham Hirsch Philips (829 -1924) was married to Dina Rachel Solinsky (? - 1922) and came to the US in the early 1900s. It is their grave stone photos that I have attached.
I very much appreciate your help in advance. Susan Beecher <s_beecher@...>
