About CemeteryScribes

The aim of the CemeteryScribes.com website (previously GenPals.com Cemetery Project) is to preserve for future generations the information that has been inscribed over the centuries on headstones in Jewish cemeteries across the country before it is lost to the insidious ravages of acid rain, urbanization, neglect and vandalism.

While visiting the cemeteries, photographing the tombstones and researching the individuals and their family genealogy we come across interesting stories that don’t have a place on our main site.

This blog is for those strories and other items we find and think may be of interest to others.
