23002 Translation - Hebrew

5/27/2012 4:41 PM This is a birth record of Mayer Hertz. His father was Leib or Levy Hertz. *His* father is given in other records as Hertz Lion. However, the Hebrew signature in this document does not appear to be Leib or Levy bar Hershel -- and I believe the only male Jewish signator of this document was Leib Hertz. Perhaps it was Naftali?

22996 Tombstone

5/27/2012 4:39 PM This is the headstone for my Great-Great Grandfather, Sye Weiss, in Washington cemetery, Brooklyn. His death certificate gives his occupation as Rabbi.

I'm reading his Hebrew name as Yehoshua Menachem bar Moshe Weiss. I believe I've translated the date of death as the 21st day of Iyyar, 5666.

I can pick out a few words (Brooklyn?) but can use help interpreting the rest.

Thanks.

22997 Tombstone

5/27/2012 4:39 PM This is the headstone of my Great-Great Grandmother, Betty Weiss in Washington Cemetery, Brooklyn. She is buried next to her husband, Sye Weiss, who I think may have been a Rabbi.

I'm reading her Hebrew name as Chaya Baila bat Robair Chiam, and I know she died on the secular date of 28 Sep 1910.

I can use help with the rest of the stone. Thanks!
