I am glad that at this year conference we invited our researcher and
photographer Serghei Daniliuk. Many people met him and heard him talking
about cemetery projects, and a town, used to be a Jewish shteitle Serghei
It might be now we will slow the projects, because Sergei is now studying in
the University, but still he will work on a number of our projects this
Here is a progress as of now:
- Nisporeni Jewish Cemetery - photographing is done, and now the
translation/transcribing is in progress. Hopefully we will finish it by the
end of the year.
- Bricheni Jewish Cemetery. We are doing a Phase 2 - Clearing paths, and
cleaning with photographing. Half of the job was done. We have received
about 750 photos of graves, did not have before. There is going to be a
second trip to Brichany to finish this work, and after that we will do the
- Vadul Rashkov, Phase 1 was completed and 862 burial records are available,
plus 454 Unknown graves at our website. Phase 2 photographing is done, and
now it is in process of "second" reading, and October-November it will be
ready and submitted to JOWBR
- Kishinev Jewish Cemetery. So far one sector of the cemetery was
completed, and is available at JOWBR. I got a promise >from another person,
who did part of cemetery to finish 3 more sectors this year... I will let
you know when the images will arrive
- Beltsy Jewish Cemetery. Also another group is photographing the cemetery
by sectors, and hopefully by the end of the year they will give us another
- Reni Jewish Cemetery. I hope that Serghei D. will have a day to go to
that cemetery and photograph all. The cemetery is not very big.
- I also got a list of Jews >from Bessarabia who were buried in Brazil
(cemiterio israelita de Vila Mariana). The list has about 300-400 names and
Jews were >from Ataki, Brichevo, Brichany, Beltsy, Soroki, Teleneshty,
Yedinets, Sekuryany, etc. Unfortunately there are no dates in the list...
only names and towns they were from. I will work with JOWBR and see what we
can do here.
This is all for now.
Please let me know if you have any questions, issues.
