    All records are going to uploaded to the database in several weeks. The total records we completed as of July 2020 is more than 222,000!

  • Find a new column in the tables above for completed Revision Lists: 'More about records: title page, ending pages, signatures, etc.' Every set of records for a town/year will have that additional article about this particular set.

  • Introduction pages for Revision lists were updated, click here

  • There are two links at the Introduction pages you might be interested: List of Microfilms we worked on and complete inventory of towns/years/type of list we completed or still working.

Bessarabia Vital Records. New Acquisition:

  • We started to receive Bessarabia Vital records from several towns in Bessarabia, which we do not have yet. To get all these records into JewishGen database we need a team of dedicated members who can translate from Russian and Yiddish (Hebrew), manage such projects. Details will follow. If interested to work, please email Inna Vayner who started this project or Yefim Kogan.

  • Revision Lists, plan to upload to JewishGen in June/July of 2020. A number of Revision List sets are going to be completed for towns of Kishinev, Khotin, Bendery, Beltsy, etc, see the progress. There are already 5706 records already completed.

Jewish Cemeteries. Progress:
  • Photographing of Sector 1 at Kishinev Jewish Cemetery is completed, and hopefully we will finish indexing, deciphering the inscriptions and send it in summer time to JOWBR.
  • Beltsy Jewish Cemetery. Next phase of photographing is done, and hopefully we will complete the rest and send to JOWBR soon.
  • Teleneshty Old and New Jewish Cemeteries. It appears that not all translations of the inscriptions were done right, and we have more images of tombstones from Joyce Field which were not included. There will be more new records added soon.
  • Vila Mariana Jewish Cemetery, San Paulo, Brazil. There are going to be some photos attached to records, and we will add them to JOWBR records.
