Welcome to Bessarabia Research Division!

We share histories, resources, data, and research tips to help each other research Jewish Genealogy in the region of the Bessarabia gubernia of the former Russian Empire (including parts of today's Moldova and Ukraine) as well as today's Transnistria region with sections of Kherson and Podolia gubernias.

To begin, use the clickable map to get to information about a specific district or town. Or, click 'Get Started' on the top menu bar to learn about the work of the RD and how our website is organized.

There's a LOT of information here; we hope you'll enjoy browsing and digging. If you have questions, or want to contribute something of your own, contact us.
