Memorial Plaques Database Grows to More Than 105,000 Records. Please help us grow! #poland #ciechanow
JewishGen is proud to announce its year-end 2015 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 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 http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.
