"I must say that your site has helped me begin to solve a family mystery and view grandparents in a cemetery in Brooklyn,
and then look at the graves of ancestors from 500 years ago in Frankfurt, Germany. I absolutely commend the hard work, and hope that more cemeteries will be available in the future!"
"Let me tell what has happened today - since I rejoined. First some background. My distant cousin Ethel was named for an aunt of hers who had "died in child birth". She knew nothing else about this woman, not even her married name. She always wanted to know more about her, and where she was buried..."
"Thank you for identifying the graves of my maternal great-grandparents, Louis and Jane Levi Wolfe. It is amazing to have the online photos! I was also able to get a copy of census data on their household in Syracuse from the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati, another excellent resource."
"Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the tombstone photos. We have tried many times to get information about the burial of my great grandmother. I have come upon your site and found not only her tombstone, but her parents as well. Again, these are wonderful images which help to confirm..."

In theory we are interested in all Jewish records. So far we have posted from locations we were able to get our staff to and that lead to working on much of NY, NJ, IL, CA, Canada, Germany, and Israel. In each location, we usually start with capturing the oldest records available.
The database is available at some Public Libraries for example, the Library of Congress, the Center for Jewish History in NY City. There is a small fee for individuals to access the database, and searches are all free.
Yes. You can enter the name in the name field, and then enter a city of country in the location field. For example- Cohen, Germany. For that matter you can enter a city name in the location field. and leave the name blank, to browse records at a location.
There is a link to a complete list on the home page under the main banner.
The records in this database are obtained by hired photographers who travel to distant locations and work for days or weeks to complete the job. The records also have to be indexed and edited. Some websites offer random records that individuals donate, but here we have an organized method of obtaining complete records forming a very large collection.
The records of many cemeteries are usually not as complete as they believe. We are glad that our website helped you find the record you've been looking for.
