Saskatchewan Cemeteries Project link #canada #names


Here is a link to a website that has thousands of names in cemeteries across the province of Saskatchewan. For information purposes there is a Jewish Cemetery at Hirsch. It is now a heritage site and has been for some time. There is some information about the cemetery online. Some Jewish people are buried in community graveyards in small towns located across the province. If someone can find the final resting place of a relative by using this website it is available.

The Lipton Hebrew Cemetery is missing from this list.   I have photos of all the grave sites as well as general photos of the cemetery and some limited historical information about the area.  Feel free to contact me about Lipton.

My great grandfather was the Rabbi/Shochet/Mohel for the Lipton community in Saskatchewan from 1909-1922, after which he made aliyah to join the younger half of his family (his older children were in Canada). His name was Joseph Molchadsky, and according to the local history of Lipton, Trails and Tales of Settlement and Progress; Lipton and District 1875-1975, he was known as "Reb Joseph." There is a short section (pp. 45-47) on the Jewish Cemetery, that also contains a list of graves. It is likely that my great grandfather presided over these funerals during his tenure in the community. He died in 1925 and is buried on Har ha-Zeitim.
