The Photos section includes a link to an album of pictures taken by Joshua Spinak during his visit to Uzventis in May 2011.  
The album includes many pictures of the stones in the Jewish cemetery. The inscriptions are not easy to decipher clearly, but perhaps you might recognize one that belongs to an ancestor.

 Also included in the 
Photos section are pictures of a Sefer Torah from Uzventis.

Please contact me if you have additional pictures to add. We can link to pictures on your web-based photo albums  (I can help you if you are not sure how to share an album).
