13906 Tombstone

11/8/2009 This is the apparent gravestone of my great great great grandfather, Abraham David Dampf.

At the bottom of the tombstone I can make out the name DAMPF, and in the middle, in Hebrew, ABRAHAM DAVID is readable. The name of the father is hard to read but includes a "lamed" and an "aleph" letter I believe. The date of death was in the period 1906-08 according to the cemetary register.

I'd like to know if anybody can make out Hebrew writing, and more specifically the father's name and the date of death?

13897 Photo Identification

11/8/2009 My father(centre, front) is the goalkeeper of this Viennese team I think his friend Ernst Pjorwansky may be 3rd right at the back. The team may be Czech speaking or have Czech associations or it could be from the Staatsgymnasium in the VIIth District. (I think they look a bit old for this). I would be grateful for any suggestions or information to add to my knowledge View the post, there are no responses

13883 Translation - Hebrew

11/8/2009 Please translate the towns and FEIT names from Hebrew to English. This excerpt is from Page 1 of a prenumeranten list in a book published in 1870 Poland (then Galicia). The paragraphs seem to begin with the town name in bold followed by names of the donors from that town. The FEIT names are highlighed in yellow.

The person who mailed me the pages told me there are three Feits listed from Jasienica (Yashnitza) and mentioned four names: Mendel Feit, son Eliahu Feit and Nuchum Feit, son Leibish Feit. I can read the town Yashnitza and Mendel Feit and Eliahu Feit in the Page 7 excerpt and David Feit in the Page 10 excerpt. It looks like Nuchum and Leibish are in the Page 8 excerpt but the town might be in the middle of the paragraph.

A very important question is when two names are together, what is the relationship? For example, is it Mendel and his son Eliahu or is Mendel the son of Eliahu?
