: The very large cemetery is in Reistenhausen (1 k. from Fechenbach), up in the hills. The Priest from Fechenbach (Collenberg) took us there. I believe he got the key from the mayor of Reistenhausen. Perhaps 1/2 dozen burials in last 50 years. All but the very old ones legible, all in Hebrew. The Priest from Fechenbach also has a record book from the 1800s listing all births, marriages & deaths from that town. In his letter to me he said this had been the cemetery for Wuerzberg, although it seems a bit far for that.
