New Nasielsk Cemetery Inscription Resource - Russian and Hebrew Translation Request

Aaron Slotnik
 

Hello Genners,

I recently became aware of a "new" resource available from the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP - http://cahjp.nli.org.il/webfm_send/1006 on page 37) for the town of Nasielsk to the northeast of Warsaw:

NASIELSK (pow. Pultusk, woj. warszawskie) 1910 Microfilms: Copies of
inscriptions from synagogues and tombstones [H, R], 1910. (RGIA, St.
Petersburg, Departament dukhovnykh del…)

The material was acquired by another researcher and I've been able to start to review it.  While there is a lot of material in Russian, the majority and the focus is tombstone inscriptions from the now non-existent Jewish cemetery.  The images are quite clear and the word for word handwritten inscriptions are also quite good for the most part . . . some of them are even printed.

I'm trying to understand what the context of the material is and perhaps why it was created.  I'm hopeful that information may be in the first few pages of the Russian material, perhaps an introduction and explanation.  I've attached the pages here for review.  I'm not looking for a word for word translation at this time, rather a summary of what it says.

Please reply privately if you are able to read these or for any questions.

Regards,

The four images are a description of the Dubno, Volyn province, synagogue and, possibly, community. The images are too small and are of poor quality. The text is signed by the Rabbi of the Dubno district Morgol'es (?).
