Hello researchers,

I want to add to my monthly report about the Jewish cemeteries project progress. I already told you
what is going on in Kishinev Jewish Cemetery, but here are more:

Brichany cemetery, Phase 2 - Clearing paths, cleaning, etc. - all work is done, photographs were
taken, and now team is working on indexing, deciphering the inscriptions. Hopefully, we will end
this project in 2-3 months.

Lipkany cemetery, Phase 2 - team of people are now at the cemetery cutting trees, cleaning, and
photographing the stones. It probably will need a second trip if one is not enough. Planning to do
everything including indexing by end of the year.
