JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.
This update added approximately 21,000 records and 20,000 photos >from 22
synagogues in the United States and Canada. This update brings the Memorial
Plaques holdings to 157,000 records and 115,000 photos >from approximately
250 synagogues / institutions representing 9 countries.
We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.
