This is a page in our Documents section. Click the button labeled "Documents" in the left-hand column to reach all of the other resources of the Document area. It is also a part of the Current Projects listed in the Welcome section, so you may also click that button to read about other current collaborative projects on which we are working.

The Cemetery Stone Project now encompasses around two dozen pages. Please go to Cemetery Stones, page 1 to find out what is included in these pages, to find the links to all of the pages we have created documenting Lechovicher burials, and to learn about the key role of Tina Levine in creating this tremendous collection of data for Lyakhovichi researchers. She photographed every stone in every NYC plot related to Lyakhovichi and Baranovichi, over 1200 photographs including the ones on this page.

Cemetery Stones, page 1 also describes some of our new discoveries that allow us to determine key facts about the deceased even when their stone is damaged, eroded, or missing. Please check the introductary article on that page to learn what the symbols and shapes of the monuments may tell you as well as details we can learn from the Hebrew names on the markers. The database of stones that the webmaster created, based on the images created by Tina Levine, is what you are using as you examine the listings created in Mount Judah Cemetery below for the Musher-Baranovicher Benevolent Society.

This is the third grouping of Musher Baranovicher listings on our pages. Go back to Cemetery Stones, page 1 to find a list of all of those at Mount Zion, Mount Judah, and here at Wellwood Cemetery.

Tina Levine went out to take photographs of the 600 plus gravesites designated at Wellwood Cemetery, but it appears from inspection on the ground, that much of that count is in reserved spaces, not yet used. There were around 130 graves here and so they appear altogether on this single page. But this plot is a modern active cemetery and new burials are ongoing. All of the reasons for using Baranovicher burial records for Lechovicher searches that we have mentioned earlier, continue to apply. But Wellwood burials emphasize a new piece. Many of the people buried here left Baranovichi not in the Russian period but in the time when Baranowicze was a Polish city, the largest Polish city in the Nowogrudek district. Others were forced to flee into the Soviet Union or to survive the Nazi onslaught directly. A Lechovicher family might have sent some adult children to the US in the 1910s but Baranovichi, a modern Polish city, attracted others of that same family's children. So Lechovicher immigrants of 1910 were followed by Baranovicher cousins of the 1930s. And a new route to travel into your family's past can be followed.
