WITBANK  JEWISH  CEMETERY

INTRODUCTION:

      On the 9th of June 2002, Lionel Lewis and I,  documented and photographed all the tombstones in the Witbank Jewish cemetery.  All the tombstones are located within 7 rows, which we numbered 1 through 7. The tombstones are all facing in the same direction, approximately East. The rows in the cemetery go from South to North. (Left to Right). 
      Example: 1-04 means tombstone number 4 in row 1. Tombstone 1-05 is to the right and north of tombstone 1-04.

There are 192 graves in the cemetery, 146 tombstones, plus 42 unmarked graves. Four of the tombstones each have two inscriptions which represent two separate graves.

A Few Suggestions to help you browse this web site more effectively.

Use the latest Microsoft Internet Explorer browser version 6.
It seems to work fastest for our web site.
If you have an older version of the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser,
upgrade and download the newer version 6.

If you use a Netscape browser, then upgrade and download the latest version 7.

However Microsoft Internet Explorer browser version 6, works faster than
Netscape's browser version 7.

When viewing one photo at a time from the following Name Index web page,
use the BACK button on your Browser, to return to that web page.

"INDEX & PHOTOS OF TOMBSTONES, BY FIRST NAME WITHIN LAST NAME SEQUENCE"

You will also have the option to view photos of all the tombstones in name sequence,
or by location. i.e. Tombstone within row sequence.

Most of the time when viewing each photo, you will be given the option to

"VIEW A VERY LARGE VERSION OF THE PHOTO".

Depending on your modem speed, it can take from about 10 seconds to 10 minutes,
to download a very large version of a photo. So carefully choose only those photos
that you are really interested in, or those photos you wish to print, before downloading
the very large version of a photo. After downloading any very large version of a photo,
you will notice that the photo is much too big to fit on your monitor screen. This is normal.
Use your vertical and horizontal scroll bars to view all of the very large version of any photo.

To print a good quality photo, download the very large version of the photo.
Then save the photo to any folder on your hard drive. Afterwards, using any photo editing
software you can edit and resize the image to fit within any print page, or part of a print page.
(A normal  sheet of printer paper measures 8 1/2" x 11")
I usually print two images at a time, on each sheet of good quality photographic paper.

Our cemetery web site photos will look best with those monitors having a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels or better.

Those with small monitors  or monitors having a resolution of 800 X 600 or less, will sometimes have to use their scroll bars to view some of the photos.
