Kezdivasarhelyi, Covasna, Transylvania, Romania Cemetery - Photos of gravestones

Janos Kocs of Sfantu Gheorghe, Covasna, Romania announced the publication of 16 photographs of the gravestones in the Kezdivasarhelyi cemetery located in Covasna, Transylvania, Romania. Parts of that area were one included in Hungary. The images come from Kocs' personal collection of genealogical materials from that area. "I personally walked through this cemetery and carefully photographed the stones so that they can be easily read from the photos. In addition, we have indexed the entire collection in the FamilyTrackers database." according to Kocs, the publisher.

"These photographs are important to those people who have relatives in Kezdivasarhelyi and is published here for the first time anywhere. This collection is just a small part of the thousands of records being published from this area of Transylvania. We are happy that Janos is making such quick progress on these documents and proud that he chose FamilyTrackers as the place to publish this important set of information. All of the people mentioned in this cemetery have been added to FamilyTrackers' world-wide index so that they can be searched accurately." according to Gene Hall, CEO of FamilyTrackers.

The grave markers included in this collection includes the following family surnames: Klein, Leiwanemam, Augh, Weiss, Fulop, Jakobin, Berger, Wittenberg, Augner, Augner, Wittenberg, Kirschner, Selmann, Trattner, Fein, Feder, Fischermann, Fenstein

All publications at FamilyTrackers are included in one master index so that genealogists only need to enter and save a search; then the system returns a list of publications and resources that can help. Searches include criteria for surname, exact location, and time frame so that results are accurate. Existing FamilyTrackers members have already been notified of matches to their previous searches. According to Hall, "If you enter a search for one of the surnames above and don't get a hit, that just means that the surname is outside the geographic area or time frame that you have defined. It may also mean that the surname has not been indexed yet and FamilyTrackers will notify you as soon as a valid match is made for your search."
