Re: Use of "ben Avraham" on a headstone #general

Jeff,

There are many possible explanations:

1.  The birth record or the tombstone are incorrect.
2.  Meier was his birth father, and Avraham was a step-father.
3.  The birth record you found was for someone else, i.e. a cousin of your grandfather who was born in the same town in the same year.

Do you have any other documents which may list his father's name, i.e. marriage record?
