Klykoliai Cemetery circa 1990

CEMETERY: It is in relatively good condition with about 50 tombstones remaining. There is a lot of common surface that seems to indicate that part of the cemetery was destroyed. Most of the tombstones are unreadable or readable only using special techniques. The following names were found: Osher bar Itsahak died 5676; Fruma bat Iehuda Zalman died 7655; Moshe ben Tsvi; Itshak bar Abraham Shneierman, died 5695. 95% of the tombstones are without family names.

UPDATE: The cemetery is in very low ground next to the river dividing Lithuania and Latvia. As such, the ground is very soft; and many of the stones have either become sunken or partially sunken into the ground or completely fallen over. I estimate that if a recovery job were done, there would be found many more than the 50 stones mentioned.
