Ukraine SIG #Ukraine More memorials and surname lists #ukraine


Greetings all,
I would first like to thank the few >from this list who sent me their English translations of the Hebrew/Yiddish names inscribed on the New Jersey Pinsker Holocaust memorial. It was so very nice of you to do this. I have now added this list to the Pinsker memorial page.

I have also added a page for a Sernick/Wichevke, Ukraine memorial that stands at Montefiore Cemetery in Springfield Gardens, New York. Would someone please tell me what the current names are for these two towns? I assume that they both still in the Ukraine. Also, this memorial has three sides that list in a horizontal fashion many, many names of those who are memorialized. This is too much for me to translate to English, so perhaps someone again might like to undertake this task. I do have photos of the inscriptions that are perhaps a bit larger, if the names on the photos currently online are too small to decipher. The link to the main Holocaust memorial page is .

I have also started unique surname lists for some Kiev and Odessa burial plots in New York and New Jersey. I know that there are a good number of you who are researchers of these cities. The Kiev list is a small one, and has been formed >from only one small society plot. The Odessa list is >from three society plots (out of nearly three dozen that exist in the New York-New Jersey metro area!).
