Tiraspol Cemetery photographing #ukraine
Dear Bessaraber and Ukrainian Researchers,
Bessarabia SIG started recently a project to photograph all the graves at
Jewish Cemetery in Tiraspol, Moldova, formerly part of Kherson Gubernia.
Town of Tiraspol has dual "jurisdiction" at JewishGen. It belongs to
Ukraine SIG and also to Bessarabia SIG. You can find a lot of information
on that town at Bessarabia SIG website: photos, Tiraspol Zionists project.
There are at this time 2469 records at JOWBR for Tiraspol. Our goal now is
to get the photographs for all these records, and also add records, which
were not part of this first 2469. I expect to have about 1000 additional
records or more.
I am in touch with one of last Jews living in Tiraspol, and he has already
started to send us photos of the graves. Janet Furba, former resident of
Tiraspol and I are Project leaders for this important addition.
I would like to ask all our members to contribute to the project: Tiraspol
Cemetery project among other Donation project. You can find it at
Bessarabia or JOWBR part of Donation projects. We need money to pay for the
photographs we are going to put at JOWBR, JewishGen.
To contribute, please go to JewishGen / Donate / Bessarabia SIG / Tiraspol
Cemetery Project or direct link is
(you need to login to JewishGen).
We may also need volunteers to check the records against the images. Please
send me any questions, suggestions.
