Learning from Pawel Sygowski and Andrzej Trzcinski

The Help from Pawel Sygowski and Andrzej Trzcinski

Pawel Sygowski and Andrzej Trzcinski from the University of Lublin wrote a very relevant article in Polish about the Jewish cemetery in Lubaczow . In particular they concentrated on the graves from before 1800, those graves that I,  in my own survey, usually had no ability to write more than "Old grave" and perhaps take a photo of the top of the gravestone that I could see. Their article was published in the Rocznik Lubaczowski Tom III in Lubaczow in 1998.

Their detailed studies of 35 of these very old stones include the Hebrew text, translation to Polish, photos of several of the stones and much more.

As given names usually were passed from one generation to another, I decided to list these 35 persons, with my own transcription. There seem to be three family names (Szpiro, Gorbech and Gecel ). There is a daughter of a KOHEN, and a daughter and a son of a LEVI.
