17594 Tombstone

1/2/2011 4:11 PM Please translate the Hebrew text - looking for names, dates, places specifically.

There are 2 images of the SAME grave with different lighting to help viewing the Hebrew letters.

Possibly Augusta Abraham, nee Kurzezunge, daughter of Moritz/Moishe and Rica Kurzezunge, wife of Moritz/Moische Abraham?

Thanks in advance for your help.

17574 Photo Identification

12/29/2010 6:20 PM I'll need an approximate date and location of this image.

Ignore what's written on the bottom. I was told that these were brothers of my great-great-grand father, Elias Birer... but I'm not sure.

I wanted to know an approximate time and location of when this photo was taken.

Elias Birer, a book binder, was originally from Keidani, Kovno. He eventually came to Riga. Him and a group of other merchants from Riga purchased land in Palestine with the intent on moving there and becoming farmers. I think that this might be members of the group.

This picture could be from Riga, Turkey, Palestine or Germany.
