Not being a Windows user, IE, with its vulnerabilities, is unavailable to

That it doesn't work with Thunderbird is not a surprise: Thunderbird is a
mail and news client, not a browser at all.
Ooops! I meant Firefox of course. IME Hebrew sites don't seem to work
as well with Firefox as with IE and oft times not at all.

Request for tombstone translation (ViewMate VM6190) #austria-czech

Michael Gordy
 

Now on Viewmate as file VM6190 is the tombstone of Georg REISS
of Straznice (near Hodonin). Can someone perhaps translate for
me? In particular:
(1) How would Georg's Hebrew name be written/pronounced in
English?
(2) Would his father most likely have been Simon or Samuel in
German?
(3) Any indication of cause of death? Georg and two of his
brothers all died young within a couple of months in 1899.

Re: Were they from Poland or Russia? #general

Yisrael Asper
 

When borders changed sometimes ethnicities changed with them. For instance
I was told that Rav Meir Arak and so naturally my mother's mother's sister
Hinda (Renke) Arak were Eastern Galitzianers (Ukrainian Galitzianers)
I amusingly can claim myself then in a larger sense as partially Romanian
since I learned that it is true but only because borders switched and in
this case so did ethnic identities but in some instances like in the
Lublin area peoples ethnic identities stuck with Polish. People move and
ethnic identities don't always switch.

My paternal ancestors emigrated >from the town of Druzhkopol,which was in the
Volhynia gubernia of present day Ukraine.
I noticed,however,on the Ellis Island database,that there are
passengers whose town was listed as Druzhkopol,Pinsk Reg.While I am aware
that Druzhkopol shifted borders,and at one time,as part of Poland,I am
puzzled as to how it got listed with Pinsk.
Your comments and guidance would be most appreciated.
