JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry – Tombstone Tuesdays October 29, 2019

I can’t believe I missed this database for Tombstone Tuesdays, https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/ – see also https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm.

The JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) is a database of names and other identifying information from Jewish cemeteries and burial records worldwide, from the earliest records to the present.  It is a compilation of two linked databases: a database of burial records, and a database of information about each particular cemetery.  JOWBR’s aim is to catalog extant data about Jewish cemeteries and burial records worldwide.  Photographs of the gravestones (matzevot) are also included in this database.

We regret that we cannot accept individual family burial data.  JOWBR only accepts data from an entire cemetery or an entire landsmanschaft/organization plot within a larger cemetery.

Note: the restriction above.
