Click here to access a web site, which includes names of people buried in selected Latvian and Lithuanian Jewish cemeteries. Most of the tombstones do not have surnames, just the given name, patronymic and year of death. Comparable database for Belarussian cemeteries will be available in the future.
The site also includes an index of more than 9,000 Lithuanian Jews extracted from Lithuanian newspapers from the years 1850 to 1910, mostly from the State of Douma in Kaunas province. There are also a limited number of photographs of Jewish sites in Belarus, Latvia and Lithuania.
