JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 year-end 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 12,000 records and 1,800 photos >from 11
synagogues in the United States, Hungary and Tunisia. This update brings the
Memorial Plaques holdings to 169,000 records and 117,000 photos from
approximately 260 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 If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.
