Hello JewishGeners,

I want to update you on a progress with Cemetery projects for the
Bessarabia/Moldova region.

- Lipkany, Phase2 - Clearing paths, cleaning, etc. - completed, first reading is in
progress. Additional 1,000 burial records with photos will be added, hopefully in
November-December of this year

- Kishinev Jewish Cemetery,
--Sector 5, photographing is done, indexing is at the last stage. New 2,700
burial records with photos will be added shortly in September-October of this year
--Sector 1, 3, 6 - photographing is in progress

- Vadu-lui-Vlad (Dombrovitsa) - photographing is completed. 45 burial records,
but only several with readable inscriptions. Will be send to JOWBR in
September of this year. This cemetery will need Phase2 - clearing paths,
cleaning, etc. It will be scheduled for spring 2020

- Beltsy Jewish Cemetery - we already have about 4,000 burial records mostly
with photos, and I received about 500+ photos, and now we need to do a
"second" reading to send this set to JOWBR, hopefully in November of this year

- Ataki Jewish Cemetery - Phase2 - clearing paths, cleaning, etc. - work for
Phase2 is planned for Spring of 2020

- Vila Mariana, San Paulo, Brazil, Jewish cemetery. We got the names of people
buried in that cemetery who is >from Bessarabia (no photos). About 500 burial
records will be sent to JOWBR in October of this year

- there are a number of Jewish cemeteries planning to photograph in 2019-2020:
Klishkivtsi, Rishkany, Teleneshty - new cemetery, Vertujeni, Zguritsa...

Please let me know if you have any questions.

We may need help in translating the inscriptions >from Hebrew, Russian. Also
please consider to donate to Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery project.

All the best,
