Please could some kind person give me a complete translation of
everything on these stones

The photos were taken by Dr. Leszek Hondo in Tarnow cemetery, Poland.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM40705

We think it is the grave of Scheindel JOHSPE. I am especially interested in
the year, age of deceased and the name of her father and any other
relatives.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM40706

It is the grave of Dobe KELLER nee MILLET, my great-great-grand-aunt.
I am especially interested in the age of the deceased and the name of her
father and any other relatives.

Please reply either privately or via the Viewmate form, unless of course
you have a point of general interest to Galicia researchers.

TIA!

Memorial Plaques Database Pre-Conference Update #courland #latvia

Nolan Altman
 

Memorial Plaques Database Grows to More Than 82,000 Records. Please help us
grow!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2015 pre-Conference Update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added 8,000 records and 6,000 photos >from Canada and the US.
These records come >from 15 different synagogues and other institutions.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

JOWBR Grows to Over 2.4 Million Records!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2015 pre-Conference update to the JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR database
can be accessed at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're
a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you take a look at the first two
explanatory screencasts at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

This update adds approximately 70,000 new records and 21,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 570 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 2.4 million records >from more than 5,400 cemeteries /
cemetery sections representing 115 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been instrumental in the
growth of foreign veteran and foreign country burials. Eric works with a
team of data entry volunteers; Alla Aizenberg, Sandra Bennett, Julie Bolton,
Sharon Duckman, Helen Furnell, Henry Graupner, Guy Haber, Ann Meddin
Hoffmann, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Renee Payne, Amit
Pinsler, Yael Polat, Irina Roskin, Rebecca Stern, Suzanne Tarica, Nicholas
Trokiner, Sari Tuomioja, and Paula Zieselman. In addition, without our
volunteer transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, we would not be able to
add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

Significant additions to the database include collections >from Austria, the
Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Romania, Scotland, Ukraine and the
United States. Please check our online cemetery inventory at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a complete
listing.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to make
additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery section
individually or consider a group project for your local Society, temple or
other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR database and
make it possible for researchers and family members to find answers they
otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations you may be
affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that would
consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

We present four new inspiring stories in the latest issue of
JewishGen's SUCCESS! STORIES webzine. You can access these stories
from the "About Us" button on our website or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen/testimonials/index.htm

Peter Vanlaw learned that his family was Jewish when he was 51 years
old. Through a connection he makes via JewishGen's Family Finder, he
learns about the family that had been kept a secret >from him all those
years.

Stella Saperstein knew nothing about her American family while she was
growing up in the former Soviet Union. After several unsuccessful
research efforts, she connects with her previously unknown cousin
through JewishGen's Family Finder.

Carol Clingan obtains a copy of Sarah Cohen's obituary that lists two
surviving sons. She knew of one of the sons, but who was Sam Bloom?
She contacts another researcher who listed the Bloom name in
JewishGen's Family Finder. It turns out he has the other piece of the
puzzle!

Robin Koerner updates her story >from January 2015, telling us of the
Maniches family reunion in Montevideo, Uruguay. It was more than 100
years ago when the ancestors of these families had been together in
Krynki, Poland. Now a connection through JewishGen's Family Finder
brings them together.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel,
Editor and Anna Blanchard, Webmaster. We hope you will be inspired by
these stories and we encourage you to submit your own success stories

Memorial Plaques Database Grows to More Than 82,000 Records. Please help us
grow!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2015 pre-Conference Update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added 8,000 records and 6,000 photos >from Canada and the US.
These records come >from 15 different synagogues and other institutions.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

JOWBR Grows to Over 2.4 Million Records!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2015 pre-Conference update to the JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database.The JOWBR database
can be accessed at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/
If you're a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

This update adds approximately 70,000 new records and 21,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 570 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 2.4 million records >from more than 5,400 cemeteries /
cemetery sections representing 115 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate
all our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a
faithful group of JewishGen volunteers.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been instrumental in the
growth of foreign veteran and foreign country burials. Eric works with a
team of data entry volunteers;Alla Aizenberg,Sandra Bennett,Julie Bolton,
Sharon Duckman, Helen Furnell, Henry Graupner, Guy Haber, Ann Meddin
Hoffmann, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Renee Payne, Amit
Pinsler, Yael Polat, Irina Roskin, Rebecca Stern, Suzanne Tarica, Nicholas
Trokiner, Sari Tuomioja, and Paula Zieselman. In addition, without our
volunteer transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

Significant additions to the database include collections >from Austria,
the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Romania, Scotland, Ukraine
and the United States. Please check our online cemetery inventory at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a
complete listing.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to make
additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery/cemetery section
individually or consider a group project for your local Society,temple or
other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR database and
make it possible for researchers and family members to find answers they
otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations you may be
affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that would
consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.
