25268 Tombstone

12/16/2012 4:11 PM This is Esther (Sigoloff) Kreekun.
Her name was Esther Krikun on Ship Manifest. Seen other Krikuns changed to Cohen.
She came to USA from Kiev, Russia/Ukraine in July 1904 with husband Morris Kreekun and family. In St.Louis, Mo by 1910.
This tombstone is outside Detroit, Mi.
(Per her death certificate) We believe her parents names were Sam Sigoloff / Ida Rosenfeld, but are not 100% sure.
Would be very interested in Hebrew translation.
Many Thanks!

12/16/2012 4:10 PM I believe this column from the AGAD records is titled "Wedding, Supposed Wedding, Illegitimate" and the entry under it is "illegitimate" or "wedlock." But because I am always uncertain of Google Translate, I hoped someone who knows Polish could confirm. View the post with its 1 response
