I want more info on reincarnation

1. Where can I get reading materials in Eng on this topic?
2. So when does reincarnation take place? before the maz 12 months of Gehinnon,before iot, Agter you have already been in gan eden for a while?
3. By techiyas hamesim- which of your various gilgolim come back?
4.Do we become better after each comback or are other sins likely, therby defeating the whole purpose of reincarnation.

Experiencing possible re-incarnation

When my grandson was in my car at age 3 he forcefully
insisted that he carried me in his arms.
I said I am a grown up and you are so little. But he continued to
insist he remembers carrying me in his arms.

Soul mate

How does this affect your soul mate. We are told that we have a bashert. are there multiple ones. And also re resurrection of the dead in prophecy which soul in what body comes back. These have always been my questions in regards to reincarnation
