Translation of Hebrew inscription on headstone #general

jel <jel@...>
 

I've posted a headstone picture on Viewmate:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM26538

or http://tinyurl.com/bwhu4lk

and am requesting a direct translation of the Hebrew inscriptions at the top and
bottom. I would also like to know the origin of the bottom inscription if anyone
knows.

Appreciate your help.

Frum-Krugman #general

Does anyone know how David Frum and Paul Krugman are related?

Two of my family members are supposed fourth cousins of one (so says FTDNA) and I am
curious if that leads to the other.

My "little sister" Franny ?!? #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

While rummaging through old letters I found a personal letter to me >from Jan. 1965
from my "little sister" Franny. ( She is not any biological relative). My interest
is to try to recall who this "Franny" (probably Francine/Francis)) is/was,
hopefully with your help.

The clues are: At that time she was in college, sounds like a freshman. She writes
that she has a sister Geri who had just given birth to a boy,named Michael Alan.
Franny had a boyfriend named Mark. She mentions that I (the undersigned) "have a
fan here in B.H." (Beverly Hills, Benton Harbor or any other place).

My hunch is that her father is/was connected to a conservative synagogue either as
a Rabbi or Chazan. As my father was also a Conservative Rabbi and I attended Camp
Ramah in Wisconsin for many years its possible that she lived in the midwest and/or
attended Camp Ramah at some time ( this is just a guess).

If any of the clues above are familiar to you I would be very happy to hear >from
you. (offline, ofcourse)

Shabbat Shalom and a chag Sameach (happy Holiday) to everyone.

(Ben) Hamo #general

Israel P
 

There is a fellow in my shul named Ben Ami. I asked him what it was before and he
said that in Morocco it was Ben Hamo.

Then he added that that Hamo is an acronym for Hananya Mishael va'Azarya. Has anyone
heard that before?

Gesher Galicia Map Room - new von Schlieben Maps & Program Reminder for March 17 in NYC #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

Gesher Galicia announces two new additions to our "Gesher Galicia Map
Room" which cover several districts:

1. von Schlieben Map of Three Galician Districts (L'viv, Zolochiv, Zhovkva),
ca. 1828

Lithographed black & white map with colored district boundaries from
"Atlas von Europa nebst den Kolonien, fur Geschaftsmanner,
Zeitungsleser und Besitzer des Conversations-Lexicons" ("Atlas of
Europe, together with the colonies, for businessmen, newspaper readers
and owners of phrasebooks"), published by Goschen of Leipzig about
1828. The lithograph was created by Wilhelm Ernst August von Schlieben
(1781~1839), a military surveyor and economic statistician >from Saxony
who produced influential studies of many European crownlands. This
map covers three adjacent districts of Galicia, numbered here as 1: L'viv
(Lwow, Lvov, Lemberg); 2: Zolochiv ( Zloczow), including Brody and Busk;
3: Zhovkva (Zolkiew, Zholkva), including Belz and Rawa Ruska. The map
is small but sharp and well-detailed, and includes all major and many
minor towns (mostly with Polish spelling), key roads, rivers and lakes,
colored district boundaries and a scale bar in miles. Single image of a
map purchased and scanned for Gesher Galicia by Dr. Alex Feller,
sourced >from a public auction.

2. von Schlieben Map of Three Galician Districts (Sambir, Stryi,
Ivano-Frankivsk), ca. 1828

Companion map to the above, with districts numbered here as 12:
Sambir (Sambor), including Drohobycz; 13: Stryi (Stryj, Stry), including
Kalush and Bukachivtsi; 17: Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislawow, Stanyslaviv,
Stanislau), including Monastyryska. Single image of a map purchased
and scanned for Gesher Galicia by Dr. Alex Feller, sourced >from a public
auction.

Map room website: http://www.maps.GesherGalicia.org

A reminder that public auction sites -- both in the U.S. and overseas
-- are useful resources for genealogists looking for maps, historical
documents, vital records and Jewish community ephemera. Special
thanks to Alex Feller for discovering these maps online and to Jay
Osborn for coordinating the GG map room.

Reminder: If you are in the New York area this weekend and want to
learn more about our map room and other Gesher Galicia projects,
come to our regional meeting on Sunday, March 17, at 11:00 AM at the
JCC in Manhattan, 76th & Amsterdam Ave. (Author of "Galician Trails,"
Andrew Zalewski, will also be speaking about the extensive use of maps
in his nbook.) Details here:
