Every now and then there is a website which has the kind of incredible information that researchers just can't get enough of. Cemetery Scribes is one of those. Even though the site is not new, the name is. Formerly known as GenPals, the name has been changed. Cemetery Scribes has a large amount of information about Jewish records, including a wonderful database of burial records, some with pictures included. While it would be enough to have access to the burial records, Cemetery Scribes goes way beyond that. In addition to the death records, researchers will find information and histories about cemeteries, or about the symbols and customs associated with burials.
Anyone interested in Jewish research will find this a very valuable resource.
