14057 Translation - Hungarian

12/2/2009 Next to last page with entries. My grandfather, Wilhelm Neuman, seems to have traveled to Debrecen which was home to my grandmother, Regina Grossman. I'm not positive that they knew each other in Hungary. They married in NYC in 1893/1894. View the post with its 1 response
14058 Translation - Hungarian

12/2/2009 This is the first of many pages that I have at the end of the my grandfather's travel/work book. (Pages are evidently missing). My guess is this is all rules and regulations but I haven't a clue. View the post with its 1 response
14039 Tombstone

12/2/2009 I would like a Hebrew transcription and English translation. The letters have been highlighted with colored chalk (not by me or by my request - by a person unfamiliar with Hebrew). Most of the letters are clear, but not all.

One specific question:

The name of the deceased appears to be given as Yitzhak ben ha-rav [mem-hey] Eliyahu ha-levi. Is mem-hey in this context an abbreviation (perhaps for "morenu ha-rav")?

Note - the date of death is clear (29 Menachem Av, 5649).
