Also yesterday I reported several collections of Vital records from Khotin uezd. I hope that you might be interested in these new records too.
Jewish Cemeteries. Updates:
The reason is that after working on Vadu-lui-Vlad colony Jewish Cemetery, we discovered that it is located between Vadu-lui-Vlad and Dumbravitsa. It is a cemetery served two villages Vadu-lui-Vlad and Dombrovitsa. But we had these TWO places on the cemetery list, because in different publications the cemetery name was different. and I removed one of them from inventory. We have now Dumbrăviţa (Dumbrovitsa) / Vadu-lui-Vlad colony in the inventory list.
We made some progress on Kishinev Jewish Cemetery, and our photographer completed a large sector #6, according to Burial registry book, it has about 3200 graves, but more that 1000 were not identified. We will start working on deciphering inscriptions, and hope we will be able to get more names into JOWBR probably in the summer-fall of this year. There are couple more cemeteries we are working in May-June.
Please let us know if you have any questions or want to volunteer of translations projects.
