Bessarabian Databases. Updates:

  • Revision Lists, plan to upload to JewishGen in July of 2022. We have records from following towns: Kishinev, Kalarash (Tuzora), Teleneshty, Ataki, Khotin, colonies of Soroki uezd and others. There are already 4,336 records from 1,143 families completed. See the progress.

  • Vital Records - Births, Marriages, Deaths, plan to upload to JewishGen in July of 2022. We are working with records from following towns/uezds: Beltsy, Bendery, Kishinev, and Soroki. There are already 4,000 records completed from Beltsy, Kishinev and Bendery uezd. See the progress.

  • Cemeteries, we are getting more photos from Kishinev Jewish Cemetery, but the condition of the cemetery is so horrible, that it takes very long time to get to every grave. Our photographers are working now on Sector 3 and 7. After these are done, there are going to be sectors 8 and 9 left, which are in very bad shape too.

    We got photos donated from Klishkivtsy (now Ukraine) Old Jewish Cemetery, and also I found a person in Ukraine, who will go soon to New Jewish Cemetery in Klishkivtsy and photograph all the stones. They may need to use chainsaw, other tools to get to every grave. The condition of the cemetery is not good. I will keep you posted.
