JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Update to Boston Jewish Advocate Obituary Index #general
The Boston Jewish Advocate Obituary Index has been brought up to
date through the end of 1999, with approximately 700 additions and
corrections. Included are thirty 1998 obits >from the "Jewish News"
edition. The Western Massachusetts "Jewish News" was taken over by
the Advocate in 1998 and an added obit page for that edition was
initiated in October of that year. Obituries >from The Jewish News
edition are identified with an asterisk after the issue date.
The index may be searched at

A good source for obtaining printed copies of the actual obit at
reasonable cost is the Boston Public Library: http://www.bpl.org
The library has an on-line order form at
