I would like the Hebrew translated. I am especially interested in their father's names and in particular the name of May's father.

Moshe, son of Mr. Mordechai

Our dear mother
Mintziyah daughter of Manasseh
Died 24th of Shevat, 5687

I've never heard of that first name before, but it's the best I can figure out. If you send me a larger picture, I'll check it.
4/21/2013 5:02 PM I think the name is Mantzie -indeed a rare name.

My ex is also an Eisenstein...lol

4/22/2013 5:23 PM Hello David,

May Eisenstein's Hebrew name was Montsie/Montzie Bat Reb Menasche. The word "Reb" preceding her father's given name is used as a title of honor and respect.

For clarification...some people translate the title
"Reb" by the use of the word Mr., however there is NO surname mentioned in Hebrew.
