Introduction to Jekabpils Jewish Cemetery List

This is an incomplete list of some of the names on stones in the Jewish cemetery. A project is now underway to document all the names in the cemetery and I hope to have the complete list of names added to the cemetery project database.It is of value however to have this preliminary list of names. I am putting it up as it was given to me ,with the dates in Hebrew as they were written out by the person entering the data. Eli Goldfrid and other members of the Jewish community in Jekabpils are to be thanked for submitting this data.
