Kaunas Jewish Cemetery Records List from 1965 - 2006.

      During April 2006, I visited an office in Kaunas, where they keep cemetery records from all the cemeteries in Kaunas. For the Jewish records they only have records for the Jews who died in Kaunas during 1965 and later. All other Jewish cemetery records are either missing or destroyed. The Jewish records that they have, are recorded in 2 books, one line per person. I took digital photos of more than 50 pages from these two books. Some pages only had a few entries.

Cemetery Office is:

KAPINIU PRIEZIUROS KONTORA
DONELAICIO G-VE 70
KAUNAS

Lady who helped me was Irena Dekaminaviciene

FORMAT 1. Originally the photos will be displayed as thumbnails, with a maximum of 15 thumbnails in any web page. For folders that have more than 15 photos, use the top right hand corner or the left and right arrows, to switch to other thumbnail pages.

FORMAT 2. Click on any thumbnail to increase the size of the image to view it as a slide. Use the forward and back arrows and icons on the top to browse through all the images in slide format.
