Fwd: [czernowitz2006] Cz. Jewish cemetery maps
- Dear Mimi,
Thanks so much for your efforts. You and Bruce have done a great job.
I can tell the group that directly from Bruce's efforts, I was able,
last May, to stand at the graves of six of my ancestors. I wish you all
the same success and joy that this brought.

I should have explained earlier that the current map of the cemetery
NOT show the parcel designation which was used in the prewar years. If
have the parcel and grave number as it was before the war and as it is
recorded in the burial registers or was handed down in your family, the
current map alone will not be useful in finding a particular grave.
Some years ago, a group of volunteers from JGS Ottawa, which funded the
entire project, photographed the whole burial register and all the
gravestones in the cemetery. The location of every gravestone according
to the current map, or a slight variation of it was noted.
Bruce Reisch is trying to derive a map which will show the old parcel
numbers. He is doing this by correlating the parcel numbers given in the
burial registers with the photographed tombstones and their location on
the current map, or the variation of it, which was used by the
who took the photographs.
The aim is to correlate the old Parcel numbers with the new "Area"
It is not simply a form of translation. Some new "areas" include more
one old parcel (Parzele) and some old parcels are now in more than one
area. The derived map of the cemetery and its parcel designation, as it
before the war, will not be completely free of errors. But with both
hand, by superimposing one map on the other we should be able to find
graves we are looking for.
