A list of all the graves in these three plots has been drawn up
by Ada Greenblatt who - although she has no roots in the Rasseiniai
district - very generously visited all of the Landsmannschaft and
Benevolent Associations (Burial Societies) for immigrants who came
to the US from that district, and were buried in the New York area.
She visited individual graves of 2620 people, and then compared them
to the burial records for consistency and additional information.
Some of the graves go back as far as 1885.
A list of those buried
in the Brooklyn cemetery was also supplied by James Kaye
The entries on the
lists usually give the date of birth of the deceased, and the names
of father, mother and spouse
In accordance with
the policy of JewishGen, these lists cannot be reproduced on this
