Burial Records of
Jewish Cemeteries in Central VirginiaVersion 1.0

Burial Record Search

This database was created to assist researchers in locating the burial places of Jewish individuals in the Central Virginia area. It is based on information provided by area congregations and cemetery managers, and is as accurate as the data they have recorded over the years. The initial level of detail in this database has been determined by the content made available to us. Some congregations or managers have traditionally recorded a great deal of information, while others have chosen to record only basic facts such as name and grave location.

As time and resources permit, we will use other methods to obtain additional information, including visits to cemeteries and accessing public records. Our hope is that our database will, at least, be useful in providing clues that will open additional doors in your genealogical research. If ‘Yes’ appears in the last column of the data on an individual, it indicates that there is additional information in the Beth Ahabah Museum & Archives that is too extensive to be included in this database. This might include obituaries, newspaper articles, photographs, congregational records, family records, or other information. If the individual being sought does not appear in the database, it is possible that he or she is not buried in this area. It is also possible that a congregation or cemetery manager has not yet provided burial records. All information in the database, in whatever form it may appear, is the exclusive property of the Beth Ahabah Museum and Archives and the providing organizations, and may not be reproduced in any form without express written permission. Contact the Beth Ahabah Museum & Archives for further information.
