New Database: Jewish Cemeteries of Western Massachusetts

This database contains records of over 19,000 burials in 21 Jewish cemeteries in the Western Massachusetts counties of Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire. Information in this database includes the name of the individual, the name of the cemetery, the plot number, and in some cases the dates of birth and death and the names of the parents and/or the spouse of the deceased.

The database may be searched by event year, record type (birth or death), and the first and last names of primary individuals. Names of parents and spouses, where supplied, are also searchable.

You can access this database online via American Ancestors (NEHGS).
