Yes, the Brody cemetery photography and database project was completed
a couple of years ago as a joint project between Gesher Galicia and JewishGen,
overseen by Ami Elyasaf, with the results uploaded to both JOWBR and the
All Galicia Database.

Are you searching using Soundex? If you are
not pulling up results, then your surname was either not found or was
among the headstones that were either missing, had inscriptions beyond
recognition, or were stones that had fallen over and could not be
photographed.

Still...there were well over 5,000 headstones cataloged and
translated. (The text for the headstones is also displayed in
Hebrew.)

Additionally, Gesher Galicia has many Brody vital records indexed
and found in the All Galicia Database. We are currently working on
the Brody 1874 voters list and eventually more Brody records will be
uploaded.
