Bessarabia SIG, Update for July 2018 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan

Dear Bessarabians,

Please see the What's New Section for the details of what we did new in the month of July.
Because of the conference, I spent most of my time to do research I am going to present in Warsaw.

Genealogical Conferences.

Please find at our website all sessions related to Bessarabia/Moldova at

If you still are deciding to come to Warsaw or not, I would suggest to pack things and come over.
It will be an interesting event with many presentations, meetings, conversations. I also want to
repeat myself, as saying that a little more than 200 years ago Poland was a neighborhood with at
that time Moldova Principality... and many Jews who came to Bessarabia in 18-19 century, were
from Poland...
If you are coming to conference, please come to our Bessarabia sessions, meet our guest speaker
Serghei Daniliuk, who will make two presentations - one on Jewish Shteitle without Jews in
Moldova and second on Jewish Cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova. Serghei also is offering
translation assistance >from Romanian.
If you are interested in hearing about Moldova Archives, this is going to be on my lecture. It will
include many sources of information, like NARM - National Archive of Republic of Moldova,
Miriam Weiner's Archival Material donated to Bessarabia SIG, FHL, other.
I believe that this research will bring more records into our collection, and it will allow to broader
our personal research.

Bessarabian Databases.

Updates:Bessarabia Revision Lists. A new set of records was started and some sets are in progress.
These records are going to be submitted to JewishGen in December of 2018. Records include
sets for Soroki, Ataki, Rashkov, Valey-lui-Vlad, Izmail, Beltsy, etc.

Here is the list:

All the best,
