JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Memorial Plaques Update - Database Grows to More Than 177,500 Records. Please help us grow! #general
JewishGen is proud to announce its 2018 pre-Conference 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 8,400 records and 6,900 photos. This update
brings the Memorial Plaques holdings to 177,500 records and 124,000 photos
from 263 synagogues / institutions representing 11 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 http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.
