Well, I was told that my grandfather, in the specific town (Kezmarok, Slovakia) was at one time "Rosh Hakahal." The manuscript that I looked at, predated his existence by several decades, so he was not listed. I don't think he was the richest guy and perhaps not the most philanthropic, but the family was well-respected. He had smicha (Leopold/Aryeh Leib GOLDSTEIN) I think from the Pressburg Yeshiva, and was there to assist the Rabbi, Rabbi Avraham Grünberg, in things like the Beis Din. But he might have been the exception, rather than the rule.

comment Tznius In Regards to Covering Elbows
If you have not seen a woman with short, loose sleeves, you obviously don't understand the issue here. If the sleeve is short and loose, it is possible that the skin of the woman's chest, under her armpit would be visible, and therefore not tsanuah. This would certainly occur if she has to raise her arms. I hope that clarifies it for you, Menachem.

Is there any way to paste in an image? I could capture a portion of it for display. It is not on any website at this point.

As for the set of people, it varies from about 9-12 and they are don't appear to be the same as the others in the other functions' slots.

comment Are the Aramaic root ק.ב.ל and the Hebrew root ק.ב.ל related?
How would the Hebrew word, makbil מקביל, meaning "parallel," fit in with this? Is one line, opposite the other? Something to ponder.

comment Issues with Wording, Honorifics, Symbols, Rashei Teivot on Tombstones
Thanks, Alex. I have also been told that my grandfather, Leopold (Aryeh Leib) GOLDSTEIN, who had smicha possibly from the Pressburg Yeshiva, was considered Rosh Hakehila in Kezmarok, Slovakia. I had also heard that he would meet perhaps weekly to "learn" with the Protestant minister as well. But I have no real proof of any of this. He, with grandmother, some daughters and a son were all killed in WW II. So I appreciate what you had to say in that regard.
