New York Landsmanshaftn and Other Jewish Organizations

The Jewish Genealogical Society, Inc. has compiled a searchable database of Burial Societies in the New York Metro Area. The data is searchable by Town Name, as the town or shtetl is listed in Where Once We Walked. We are aware that a number of town names have changed in the post-Soviet period, many of which were towns in Eastern Galicia that are part of Ukraine. However, for purposes of consistency, we are continuing to use the old Soviet town name. The very nature of the Town Name search means it will pertain mainly to landsmanshaftn plots. The data is also searchable by Keyword. In the near future, the database will be searchable also by Family Name, which will cover the full scope of the database.
