Western Pennsylvania Jewish Cemetery Project
The Western Pennsylvania Jewish Cemetery Project, founded in 1998, preserves the names of over 40,000 Jews buried in more than 80 regional Jewish cemeteries. The information, collected by dedicated volunteers, has been compiled in a database accessible by e-mailing Susan Melnick (firstname.lastname@example.org) and is being transferred to the Jewish Online Worldwide Burial Registry.
