JewishGen's Memorial Plaque Project Adds 5,400 Records. We Need Your Help to Grow! #rabbinic


Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2013 year-end update for the
Memorial Plaque Project database. The MPP database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/
The MPP database includes the data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from
synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

The database now includes more than 35,100 records >from the USA,
Israel, British Columbia, and now Morocco. These records come >from
57 different synagogues and other institutions.

We believe that the MPP 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.

Of particular note in this update are the following additions:
• Boston Area, Massachusetts. Thanks to David Rosen, who is
coordinating submissions >from the JGS of Greater Boston, he and his team
have added 3,500 records >from 6 institutions.
• Congregation Agudas Israel, Newburgh. Many thanks for the
submission of 1,250 records >from this Newburgh synagogue.

Whether your name or records are listed above, we appreciate all your
submissions! Thank you to all the donors that submitted information for
this update.
