Bessarabian Databases. Updates:

    • Revision Lists, plan to upload to JewishGen in December of 2021. We have records from following towns: Kishinev, Tuzora, Teleneshty, Ataki, Khotin, Soroki, Faleshty and others. There are already 2,927 records completed. see the progress.

    • Vital Records - Births, Marriages, Deaths. We are working now on vitals for Beltsy, Bendery, Kishinev, and more.  Records are going to be uploaded in December of 2021.

  • We have updated the Inventory of Vital records, added towns we uploaded last time. Here is updated Inventory list. You are going to find four tables on these pages, Births, Marriages, Divorces and Deaths.

Jewish Cemeteries. Updates:

  • Completed photographing and indexing of Jewish cemetery of Zguritsa. 574 burial records and 572 grave images were sent to JOWBR at JewishGen. The records will be available at the beginning of new year, but you can see now at Bessarabia website the Cemetery report with maps, some photos, and also the Unknown Graves at the cemetery. See cemetery Report for Zguritsa.

Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions, good ideas, or want to help in these projects.  We still need Russian translators for Revision lists, Vital records, and also Hebrew and Romanian translators.
