Viewmate tombstone photo #belarus #translation #photographs

Harlan Weller

I have uploaded a picture of my ggm's tombstone from Svir as Viewmate # 82731 and asked for assistance in translating.  Two people have been kind enough to respond, but they were unable to read the material at the bottom of the tombstone.  Luckily, I have the attached picture from 100 years ago which shows my ggf standing next to the stone.  Perhaps that will help.

p.s. The newer picture was downloaded from a newspaper article about 5 years ago (I think it was in Israel Today) reporting on a college student trip to fix up the cemetery.  Imagine my surprise when I saw a photograph that accompanied the article and recognized it as a picture of my ggm's tombstone.
