JEWISH CEMETERIES

JEWISH CEMETERIES


This Russian language resource is worth my mentioning again. There are 40+ cemeteries listed for viewing. Use an online translator as needed.
Example: (go to the site for additional cemetery names & locations)



1.   Clicking on the desired cemetery link brings you to photos of monuments with the names of those buried. Many monuments are in the Russian style imprinted with images of the individuals.

2.   If you click on an individual’s name, sometimes there is additional information regarding others who are buried nearby or about those who are buried together.

Example: Moscow, Vostryakovsky Cemetery

3. There is also a search box available. ( I assume that you would need to convert the name to Cyrillic letters before entering it.)
