Jewish Burials Database
A database of Jewish burials in Central Virginia was created in 2008 to provide assistance to people researching their Jewish ancestors. It was made possible in part by a grant from the Genesis Fund of the Richmond Jewish Foundation and is based on information provided by many congregations and cemetery managers in Central Virginia as well as historical newspaper obituaries and other death records. Our hope is that the database will be useful in opening doors in genealogical research. If “Yes” appears in the last column of the data about an individual’s burial, it indicates that there is some additional information at Beth Ahabah Museum & Archives.
The database includes information from cemeteries in Richmond, Petersburg, Charlottesville and area counties. Not all of the cemeteries are specifically Jewish burial grounds. Click here for a list of the cemeteries currently included in the database.
All information in the database is the exclusive property of the Museum & Archives and the providing organizations, and may not be reproduced in any form without express written permission.
