Lipany, Slovakia - Jewish Cemetery

All gravestone photographs for the Lipany Jewish Cemetery are now on this gallery!! Images 1-62 were photographed in October of 2002. Images 63-145 were photographed in December of 2002.

If you use http://www.pbase.com/trip/lipany&page=all , you can see all the gravestones by scrolling down.

To actually see the inscriptions, I strongly suggest you view the larger images. You can do this by clicking on the first image and clicking "next" for each additional one. These gravestones are now included on the "JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry" - (JOWBR)

Surname spellings are based on Hethars(Lipany) records when possible.

I would like to thank some of the people who have assisted in the translation process over the years including Tanya Klein and Steven Birnam. Please email me, if you can assist with translation. seraph@dc.rr.com (Last updated - 23 April 2012)
