11900 Translation - German

5/18/2008 I realize these are very difficult to read. They are the illnesses associated with various deaths. Without being able to easily read the script, I can't seem to translate them. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Best, James

5/18/2008 Just curious as to what some of the words are. What I can make out is:

My guess is daughter of but it seems there is one or two extra words in there.

Thanks in advance,

James

5/18/2008 I am not certain what this says, but I believe it not only has the name of the deceased (Sara Gerszonowicz) but also may have other family names. I can't tell from the translation if it is the parents, or, if it is the husband. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated! View the post with its 6 responses
