HELSINKI & TURKU CEMETERYEric Adler has transcribed information directly from the headstones in the Helsinki Jewish Cemetery (1282 names) - it does not include burials in Helsinki's old Jewish cemetery, and from Turku Jewish Cemetery (326 names) in September 2001. The databases are in the JewishGen Online World Burial Registry (JOWBR) format and Eric Adler has submitted the information to the JOWBR database. For more information, contact Eric Adler: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until the JOWBR is online the information can be found at the following addresses (the download of Helsinki may take a while):
