8/12/2009 What is the name of the city of origin in Russia (left hand page, line 5)? View the post with its 7 responses
13317 Tombstone

8/12/2009 This is an image for the headstone of Rebecca Levy Gould. A second image is uploaded (photo taken this week) and is for the same person (same specific details) but is different in the general wording. Is this first (1901) image (given its clarity and unusual background) possibly a mock-up for approval? View the post with its 1 response
13318 Tombstone

8/12/2009 This is the second image of Rebecca Levy (Gould's) headstone. There are now parentheses around "Gould" and absence of 4 lines of text which were on the 1901 image. I think it highly unlikely a second stone was laid and would expect this to have been the original - begging the question as to the purpose of the 1901 "stone". View the post, there are no responses

8/12/2009 This is the top of a marriage record. The next image is the bottom. Would like a translation especially to learn the parents names of the bride, and to confirm that the marriage took place in Warsaw. There probably is some overlap between this file and the next one.
Thank you.
