More and more cemeteries in Russia are being digitized and uploaded to searchable databases on internet.
Below you will find:
- a project “Service of Eternal memory” which is currently covering the cemeteries of town Astrakhan . This database so far covers Central Muslim cemetery and Town’s cemetery No 2 ( Rozhdestvenski street). Keep an eye on it as it is proposed to digitize all cemeteries of Astrakhan area.
- a project “Service of Family album” in Saratov area. The project in Saratov covered 21 cemeteries including Jewish, German and Muslim cemeteries in Saratov area, cemeteries in Aleksandrovka, Balakovo, Engels and Long Buerak. The full list of cemeteries is on the website.
The benefit of these sites is that the search can be performed by surname. If you need any help, happy to check the sites.
