JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference 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 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 If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

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