Re: synagogue memorial plaques #JewishGenUpdates


I love the interest in this subject!  When I was doing the plaques in Massachusetts, I sometimes ran into privacy concerns, but only once had a rabbi refuse to let us come and photograph.  I told hm that was fine if he wanted to be the only shul in the state without its plaques on line.  Eventually he relented.  But i always told people that the information on the plaques (except the Hebrew name) were a matter of public record, and that satisfied them.  I do know that Mass. is far more liberal about access to vital records than many other states.
