Hello! This is my first post to the Group and I'm so excited and hopeful that someone may be able to help with these translations. I am working to trace my late father's family history. In order to progress further, I'm hoping to have the attached 3 gravestones and 2 memorial plaques translated from the Hebrew inscriptions into English:
- The 2 memorial plaques are for my late great-uncle, David Fisher (of blessed memory) -- in Massachusetts.
- The first gravestone is for my grandfather, Joseph Kogan (of blessed memory) -- in Montreal, QC, Canada.
- The second gravestone is for Joe's eldest child, Mortimor Kogan (of blessed memory), my half-uncle -- in Montreal, QC, Canada.
- The third gravestone is, I believe, for Motimor's maternal grandmother, Rose Vineberg (of blessed memory) -- in Montreal, QC, Canada.
I would greatly appreciate any help you could offer with translating these texts! I'm afraid these were photos I was able to find online, and I'm not nearby any of them to go and take better/closer photos. I hope the quality is good enough to read them clearly.
I'm working on tracing the previous generation, Joseph's parents (from Ukraine, we believe) and David's parents (Lithuania, we believe), and knowing all their Hebrew names would be of tremendous value in my research. So thank you!
