The names and dates above
come from a plot map for Beth David Cemetary, Plot Map
of Block 5, Section 1 . The list was created by Wendy
Almeleh, who located the files in the YIVO Archives
at the Center for Jewish History in NYC, copied them all
and provided them to this web site.
1. *The date of survey is variously marked 1947 and 1955, but later
burials are listed. If a burial date is not listed, the grave was
marked "Reserved" which might mean that the person had
not died before the date of the survey.
2. These plot maps are not of the entire plots of the society in this
cemetery. There may be many more graves in the Mirer Society plots
that are not included. The names above are the only ones in the data
in Record Group 1320 from the YIVO Archives.
3. All people who are buried in these plots were not necessarily from
Mir. Other people could have bought plots from the society.
