Footnotes (By Sector)

[A1] Bainas is Sarah Rachel Rachtzah’s maiden name
[A2] Benzion could be a middle name or last name, hence its inclusion. He is the father of Henna Rivka, who married a Rachtzah
[A3] Shlomo Berkawar and Abraham Sarnitzki both drowned together while swimming in the ‘river (presumably the Nieman). See Sarnitzki Headstone at A16
[A4] Alternative spelling, see A42.
[A5] He was the son of Shagra and Sarah Rachel and died 7 years after they had passed away
[A6] See Footnote No.1

[B1] Possible lettering before the “aleph.” Father’s name is Tzvi Hersch
[B2] See married name Zondolovitz below
[B3] See explanation at B68
[B4] There is a beautiful poem at the bottom of this stone which may be in Yiddish. Not all letters are readable.
[B5] The last name is clearly Feinberg. There are families in the United States who bear the name Zalkin
[B6] An alternative spelling is Kerem
[B7] See alternative spelling Loveen
[B8] See alternative spelling of Lewin below
[B9] See alternative spelling of Levine above
[B10] See alternative spelling of Levine above
[B11] The first letters of the last name are unreadable. See Stone No. B25
[B12] Flag is unreadable
[B13] Unusual first name resh, vav,vav, chet
[B14] No flag as this stone was unearthed [Slide no 6587 and 6588]
[B15] Rotwine was the name of the town where Faiga Malkah was from
[B16] Unclear from stone whether or not this is a patroynmic
[B17] See maiden name listing of Bernstein
[B18] Reader is encouraged to examine stone B39. Patronymic unclear
[B19] See entry immediately below for alternative reading
[B20] Because of the unusual last name, the reader is encouraged to view the actual stone. The transcriber believes that there may be missing letters at the beginning, such that the yud which is the first visible letter represents the preceding long “hiriq” which makes a long e sound.
[B21] See explanation of Stone No. B68

[C1] It is unclear from the image whether the 2nd word is Shebach or Sarah, such that her name is either Hayyah Shebach or Hayyah Sarah.

[F1] The stone seems to depict a “Shin” but other possibilities could include a Resh which might make the stone read Raivkin or Rivkin. We invite your feedback that includes other alternative readings
[F2] Avraham’s last name as indicated on the headstone is Sondelowitz
[F3] These people are all related. Riklah married Jonah who predeceased him by three years. They are buried next to each other. On Jonah’s matzevah (marker) , his father’s name, Israel Natan, appears.
[F4] The Hebrew is unclear. The letters appear to be lamed-yud-nun (possibly a gimel)-kaf (other possibilities could include a peh and a bet).
[F5] The father of Sarah
[F6] Note burial date of 1938 [three years before the invasion]
[F7] Appears as the father of Sophie Joehlson
[F8] Other possible readings include Mas and As (first letter unclear)
[F9] It is very possible that Tumim is simply a middle name, but because it is somewhat unusual I have included it as a possible patronymic in hopes that someone might have known her/ or her family because of its rarity as a middle name.

[G1] Both patronymics, Bernstein and Gitelman, appear on this stone (G15)
[G2] Seems as though Yitzchak’s mother was Haye Sarah
[G3] Backside of Stone G47
[G4] The tav could also be read as a chet, thus making it Chaditz.

[H1] The ‘mem’ could be indicative of where she lived (or was born) prior to coming to Yurburg. It could be a town by the name of Ariashov
[H2] Other possible readings are Saretz or Karetz
[H3] Not entirely certain. Further study warranted
