Headstone translations - Narefka Gravestones #translation


David Ziants
 

I have already looked at the first 5 or so. (Did not succeed at #1.)

Am primarily now concentrating on placing links to any of the two other resources that Joy Kestenbaum mentioned now. The quality of some of the photos is better on https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Narewka/NarewkaCemetery/index.html that was mentioned. There could be photos, though, that are not elsewhere.

What is still missing across the board, with respect to these gravestones, is a Hebrew transcription - and the question would be which site would host this.

My ancestors ZIANTS, ZENETZKI (SCHLOSBERG ?,BLOOM ?), and FRYDMAN, as well as SANICKI (kohanim) family and Sarah ZIANCHICK (family in Pennsylvania, USA),  all had a presence in Narewka during the latter part of the 19th century and beginning of 20th century. The two family names in parentheses are branches of ZENETSKI, but is not sure whether anyone from these branches lived in Narewka. It is unsure whether Sarah ZIANCHICK is my ZIANTS family or not. SANICKI in Chelsea MA, USA have on their memorials that they are kohanim (paternal descendants of Aaron the Priest), but my ancestors don't have this tradition. Someone suggested the possibility that a child of a family took the family name of the mother (wanting to avoid the Czar's army and that sort of thing).

The website of the Foundation for Documentation of Jewish Cemeteries in Poland has entries for 132 Narewka gravestones, with photos and identifying information, including name of deceased, surnames, fathers names, and date of death, when available, although there are no translated inscriptions. https://cemetery.jewish.org.pl/list/c_77/ile_1
Some photos with inscriptions and other identifying information can be found on the JewishGen KehilaLinks Jewish Cemetery page, 
where there are links to other pages and websites with photos and information on the gravestones, including one contributed by David Feldman over ten years ago.

The quality of many of the gravestones might be hard to translate.  Please put your translations in as comments.  

Thanks,
