Puhoi Egerländer Dialect
Putting dialect on headstones...
Puhoi descendants! Why not put "Gäits nea in Gottes Nåmma" on your parent's headstone?
This is a conventional way of transcribing "Go in the name of the Lord" or "Go in God's name."
If the diacritics (the little circles above the letter "a") cause any problems, you could also use the following:
"Gejts nea in Gottes Nomma"
This is a great way to give a special character to our cemetery.
