7/7/2013 4:05 PM This is on the back of a photo found among old family papers. I think I can read the name Chaim (??) Goldschmidt on the bottom, presumably that of the man in the photo. Any further information would be greatly appreciated. View the post with its 1 response

28048 Tombstone

7/7/2013 4:04 PM I'm not concerned with making out all of the niceties at the top of the matzeivah. I am trying to see if anyone can help out in determining her name. It shows her name on the fourth Hebrew line up from the bottom, Maras ??? (something starting with a Fei I presume), wife of Avraham Hirsh. I cannot tell what the name is. Is it Perel? Feigah? Pesel? I cannot make out the letters besides the first one.

It could be that it is a Yiddish-Daytsh version of a name, as she was from Kirchheimbolanden, a town in extreme Western Bavaria nearing Alsace.

Also, I find it odd that her father's name is not included on the grave. Is this some sort of German/Bavarian minhag?

7/7/2013 4:04 PM Need to confirm name of child (Chaje Rocha?) and her parents' names (Abraham Mowsza and Szejna _______?) along with father's age (very important) and occupation, witness names, and patronymics, if any. Was this a late birth registration, or timely filed? Thank you! View the post with its 2 responses

If you find that this is too difficult to read, I can try rescanning with higher resolution and with color. Please advise. Written in purple ink.
