The Litvak cemetery catalog organization Maceva (www.litvak-cemetery.info) began documenting the old Jewish cemetery in Seirijai, Lithuania, last year and the work is almost complete.
During an international summer camp held August 6 to 19 in 2018, all surviving headstones were cleaned, cataloged and digitized. A total of 692 were found. Maceva has issued a map of the cemetery following the intense clean-up and cataloging there. The Lithuanian Jewish Community has partially funded some of the cemetery renovation and digitization project.
The information collected is still being examined and has been posted on the Maceva website. Many of the headstones contain full or partial inscriptions in Hebrew characters. Dr. Lara Lempertienë has been transcribing the inscriptions. The Goodwill Foundation has been financing the reading and transcriptions of gravestones here and at other Jewish cemeteries including in Telšiai and Valkininkai. The oldest gravestone discovered in Seirijai is dated 1789.
