Re: Reviews of visits to Hungarian and Transylvanian Cemeteries #hungary

Theo Rafael

Many Jewish cemeteries in the Mures and Harghita counties in Transylvania were digitized by two volunteers which uploaded the info onto an astounding site.  The entire database with all the names, burial registry data, tomb location as well as photos of the tombstones is searchable: (use the top drop-down menu). The burial registries themselves were also scanned and can be consulted online.

It was on that site that I found and was able to see my grandma's tombstone for the first time a few years ago, before visiting the cemetery last year. I also met Gyury Diamantstain, the local history buff that made it all happen together with his Israeli friend A Grunfeld.
The site also includes additional relevant Holocaust and local community searchable databases. 
Hats off to this amazing project...
