3/22/2009 Please could someone help with translation of the Hebrew inscription on
the stone of my great grandfather. I believe the Hebrew names will differ
from the English names. Thank you so much.

3/22/2009 Request help reading the mother's name from this birth certificate of Efroim Mendel Katolik, it looks like "[Something] Zysla nee Farbiarz". Father's name looks like Joska Katolik. Also, this was filed two months late and by the midwife, not the father - I don't know enough Russian to know if the reason is stated in the text. View the post with its 3 responses
