- The Jewish
Genealogical Society, Inc. (New York) website at http://www.jgsny.org
has several resources of value to Bolekhov researchers:
- A listing of 918 landsmanshaftn in YIVO's
archives, with Record Group (RG) numbers for easy access when you visit the Center for
Jewish History in New York City. For YIVO's smaller collections, included in RG 123, the
appropriate Box number is also provided. Use Edit/Find on your web browser to search for
"Bole" to find various spelling variations of the town name.
- More than 10,000 Jewish burial plots in
the Greater New York City area owned by landsmanshaftn (home-town associations),
synagogues, family circles, fraternal organizations and labor unions. Many of these are
associated with Bolekhov. It involves data from some 100 cemeteries. The search
engine allows you to type in a town name based on its current spelling
(i.e., try typing in "Bole"). It displays the name of the plot (e.g., First
Bolechower Sick Benevolent Association), Cemetery name (Mt. Zion), and the exact location
of the plot within the cemetery (Path 8 Left, Gate 12), and society type (landsmanshaft).
At another JGSNY site there is a list of
New York metropolitan area cemeteries so that you can travel to NYC and search for
your ancestors' tombstones.
