3/9/2011 7:12 PM This is the information about my g-g-g-grandmother from her marriage record. I would like transcription (and possibly translation) of the parts indicated by question marks below, as well as an explanation of where her father was from.

What I can read:

3/9/2011 7:12 PM Can somebody help me read and translate this tombstone? I spot the words: "Mosche ... ben rav Ber ben Rojthenburg". The year of his death should be 1787.

I would like to use the translation on the website about Danish-Jewish funerals: http://tom.brondsted.dk/mosaiskebegravelser

18270 Tombstone

3/9/2011 7:12 PM This is a historical photo of a stone, today almost unreadable, which I believe must be that of Hanne Cantor, daughter of Abraham C., wife of Bernt Jacob (Minden). She died 1742. Can anybody help me with a translation that can confirm this?

best regards Tom Brondsted, Denmark

18271 Tombstone

3/9/2011 7:12 PM This image was first posted in 2004 as #788. A recent replier suggested that I repost it. The first line is Baruch ben Y(aakov) A(rie) Hofheimer. My main question is what is stated in the third line which appears to contain the name Rivka, although the rest also interests me? Was Rivka the mother of Baruch? Jacob-Loew Wolf (Yaakov Arie ben Benyomin) was married twice - to Regine and Gidel. Other documents state that Baruch's mother was Gidel, but Rivka could have been Regine's Hebrew name.

I add that the Buttenhausen cemetery has been restored and the letters have been repainted, probably by someone who does not know Hebrew.

Does anyone have any ideas how old he looks? I dont know when he was born. Trying to work it out. Is the chair/pose common for photos of that time?

Thanks for the help
