Does anyone know how to find death records from Baku in the 1920's. There does not seem to be much out there about Ajerbijan.

Marlene,
I will send your email to a friend who has an interest in Baku. We came across one another when the Miami Herald back in 1997 published an article about a Jewish culture surviving 2000 years in Sloboda.  What caught my eye was the surname of my MIL (Gelfand) in the article at a mission in Baku.. A mutual friend contacted him and she wrote in an email that there was a JGS in Baku. Bear in mind that is from 1997.The president was Mikhail Agavrunov.  .  You might also want to see what if anything is in the JewishGen archives.
Regards,

Here's a link to the Ashkenazi community in Azerbaijan. Its still working as of this AM. There is apparently a separate synagogue for the Mountain Jews, quite a separate community with a fascinating history, but no website and limited contact information. If need be, I have a (non-Jewish) contact in Baku who could be helpful.

1. it is Azerbaijan.
2. Are you looking for Ashkenazim or Sephardic/Mizrahi? The Jews of Azerbaijan are from Persia. However, in the early 1900s the fledgling oil industry attracted Ashkenazim from many places in the Russian Empire. A number of our Talalay from Mogilev Belarus worked in Baku before migrating to Philadelphia. There are 2 communities in Baku so your questions need to be addressed to the correct one.
