JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Philadelphia assistance requested #general
I have identified some obituaries of interest to my research by using the
JewishGen database which indexes obits >from the Philadelphia Jewish
Exponent. I'm looking for assistance in obtaining the full obituaries.
To view the actual obituaries consult back issues of the Jewish Exponent in
hardcopy or on microfilm, at the following locations:
Philadelphia Jewish Archive Center
125 North 8th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106. Tel.: (215) 925-8090.
Historical Society of Pennsylvania Albert M. Greenfield Microform and
1300 Locust Street, Philadelphia, PA 19107. Tel.: (215) 732-2680.

the microfilm be sent over to the main campus library, Van Pelt Library.
Patrons interested in the microfilm should contact the Center for Jewish
Studies for a similar request.
