JewishGen is proud to announce its year-end 2015 Update for the Memorial
Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at 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 23,000 records and 15,500 photos >from Canada
and the US. These records come >from 40 different synagogues and other
institutions. (Explanatory files, maps and description files are in the
process of being added.)

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 If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

For a complete listing of the institutions currently in the database, please
