You might try making a rubbing of the stones, using ordinary carbon
paper. Assuming that something remains of the carved characters, the
resulting rubbing may produce outlines sufficiently well-defined to
make them legible.

If you are looking for some chemical treatment to bring out the
characters, I think you will be disappointed.

"Acohen" was written by a person whose native language has no H sound.
The work of the Israel Post Office is a nightmare for this reason,

As you point out, "Kohen" was the family's surname. But the father was
Elkana haKohen (my spellings), i.e. "Elkana, the Kohen", where the

Hi all,

I have noticed a number of requests for help with rather complicated
family trees listed with the surnames in regular type. It would be
infinitely easier to scan and see if I have any matches if the surnames
were typed in all caps, as in standard genealogical practice. Like
many others, I only scan such messages, I don't take the time to read
them in detail until I see a name which catches my eye.

Thanks in advance.

It isn't clear to me what you will gain by knowing a numerical
frequency for the name. If Emanuel was his name, then that was his
name. You do not indicate that you have another name for him, and you
will probably not just try arbitrary names, so Emanuel is the name
under which you have to seek him. It isn't all that rare.
