New additions to the Lezajsk (לידזענסק) gravestones Database #galicia #announcements

Hello all.

As announced in this post, I have committed myself to compile the names and relevant genealogical data from the recent unearthed Matzevot discovered in the  town square.

Today I’m happy to announce that another been 32 names have been added to the database, which can be searched here, which totals to 65 names.

Previously it seemed that the earliest gravestone is dated from 1915, but now the earliest seems to be from 1900. Also there’s apparently 3 Matzevot identified to have belonged to descendants of the famed Rabbi Elimelech of Lezajsk.
