24578 Tombstone

10/14/2012 3:58 PM After 20 years! - I finally have an image of my great great grandfather's tombstone from the Hill Top cemetery in Leeds, Yorkshire, England. He came to England with his daughter and son-in-law in 1887.
He was from a tiny village called Bielsk in the Plock gubernia in Poland. The original surname was Kurczak. Two sons preceded him to England and changed the family name to Goodman. Mendel was also known as Emanuel after he arrived in the UK.

I am unfamiliar with Hebrew and would be most grateful if someone would translate all the text for me into English.

24471 Translation - Russian

10/14/2012 3:52 PM I believe that the two entries on this page are for Moszek Karas and his wife. I would greatly appreciate if someone who can read the Cyrillic could let me know the wife's name and the names of both sets of parents (third column?) including maiden names if available. Thank you in advance. View the post with its 1 response
24540 Tombstone

10/14/2012 3:52 PM Might anyone recognize anything about this photograph? – the place, the style of tombstone, etc? Was it common to mount a metal plaque with the Hebrew inscription on such a fence surrounding a flat gravestone? What, if anything, might such a fenced–in grave suggest about the person?

24572 Translation - German

10/10/2012 6:09 PM Hello,
This is the death record for my 4th Great Grandmother Sprintz Durkheimer,I've been working on a translation but can make out very little,the script is very small and difficult, seems like more text that the usual death record.
I would gratefully appreciate a translation.
As always, thank you for any assistance offered.

24575 Translation - German

10/10/2012 6:09 PM Please translate into English if possible - I know it's very difficult to read. It's a note on the bottom of a Prague Police Conscrption. I belive the note has something to do with the marriage of Olga. Her maiden name was Kaufmann and she married Kalman Bodo.

I don't recognize the wriring as being German but the remainder of the document is in German so I'm assuming this is also.

Thank you very much.

24560 Interpretation

10/10/2012 6:08 PM I am trying to read the last name of the person in column 11 of line 27. He's my great-granduncle and without knowing his last name I can't research his family. The town is Kobelyaki, and the first name might be Chaim. Columns 2 and 1 read Nisan Novokovsky, my second great-grandfather.

I have a higher resolution image of the manifest, but it's too large to upload. Alternatively, here's the direct link (requires a free ellisisland.org account) to the image:

Thanks in advance.
