4/16/2008 Before Second World War my ancestors left Chisinau, Bessarabia (now in Moldova) and went through Liege, Belgium to Paris, France and than settled in Moscow, Russia.

11661 Tombstone

4/16/2008 Pearl's Hebrew name is unfamiliar to me -- it looks like "Perle Rode," but I'm not sure. Also, I wanted to confirm that I'm reading her father's name correctly: Yochanan Yitzhak.

There's no need to translate the Hebrew date or the abbreviation.

4/13/2008 What town in Hungary was Henry born in? This was downloaded from a commercial website. They interpreted the town name as Epinerca. I can't find anything close to that on shtetlseeker and am hoping for some creative ideas. It is quite possible that this town is near Ungvar, Hungary (which is now in Ukraine under a different name.) For comparison purposess, you'll notice there is an "E" on the very bottom of the application "East" 63rd St. If you'd like an enlargement, please let me know.

11634 Tombstone

4/13/2008 According to the plan of Zilina's Jewish cemetery, this is the tombstone of my great, great, great grandfather. Unfortunately the stone is a.) weathered, and b.) in Hebrew, so I am unable to read it. If some kind soul could translate, or at least pick out some of the words in the text, I would be extremely grateful!

NB: I appreciate that the contrast is not great on the picture, but this was the best shot we could manage, given the deteriorated nature of the stone.
