Thanks for sharing this sad news, Edgar. It appears from the video that it
would have been a challenge to identify my SCHIFFNAGEL ancestors buried
there. Hope that in the future the cemetery in Czernovitz will be a better
option for "discovering" final resting places of my great grandparents who
moved from Lipcani to Czernovitz in the early 1920s.
