CEMETERY: Cemetery existed since the 1700s and is still active. The Jewish Museum is computerizing all gravestone inscriptions and local history. The data is not available yet [1999] but will eventually be sold on a CD. Until then, they are willing to answer questions about burials. Contact and source: Mag.
