Viewmate Translation Ellis Boskoff Tombstone #general

Lisa P. Wanderman
 

I've posted a photo of an inscription that is either in Yiddish
or Hebrew on a side of the tombstone of Ellis Boskoff who died in
1920 and is buried in Har Nebo Cemetery in Philadelphia. I have
learned that the inscription contains the following name: "Chaim
Elya son of Yisroel." This is wonderful information but I would
like to know what the rest of the inscription says. Here is the
link to Image #38110:

ViewMate Translation Request - Hungarian #general

Amit N
 

Dear all,

I've posted a photo of an old family postcard on Viewmate for which I
need a translation. It appears on the following link:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38090

It is only the second out of probably two postcards, but the first one
is gone. I hope some of it is still understandable. I would be happy
for a complete translation, but otherwise an important notice on
places, names, relations etc.
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application or
otherwise privately to me via this email address.

Thank you very much,
Amit Naor

Re: Eroded grave inscriptions #general

Bob Roudman
 

Folks have mentioned several ways to pick up information >from a worn stone.
Several considered are incorrect and not allowed in most cemeteries. Both
chalking and rubbing can cause great harm as will shaving cream and flour.
Please see the link below for safe methods and effective methods.

March 2015 Course: Complex Genealogy in the United States #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

This Intermediate Course will help you organize what you've found and
focus on what's missing. After researching Ancestry and Familysearch,
what are the minor websites and major archives to consider? What are
your brick walls and what advanced research will break them down?

This course proceeds at your pace (there is no time dependence, our
students are worldwide, you participate in our 24/7 forum when you are
available); there are eight pdf lessons for you to download. The
lessons cover U.S. Naturalization, Passports, Death Records (Probate,
Obituaries, Cemeteries), Newspapers, City Directories, Immigration
Ports, Major Archives and Libraries, Military records, Internet
Research and State and Federal Government Records. The emphasis is on
using your computer and the Internet efficiently and employing
advanced on-site or email techniques in U.S. research.

Students are encouraged to post one ancestral branch and the
instructor will work one on one to answer questions and suggest
avenues to research; this mentoring process is unique and quite
valuable. Requirements and tuition are detailed in the course
