The New Haven Jewish Cemetery Database website is a valuable resource for family history researchers. This website provides a searchable index to Jewish cemeteries in New Haven, East Haven, Hamden, West Haven, Shelton, Orange, Meriden, Wallingford, Deep River, Moodus, Bristol, Clinton, and Cheshire. Cemetery maps are also provided.
The cemetery database can be searched by last name (required), first name, maiden name, date of death, date of birth, spouse, and Hebrew name. Select a cemetery name from the dropdown list. The data fields in the search results are last name, first name, dates of birth and death, cemetery name, grave location, link to a map, and link to more information. The detailed search results provide a calculator for determining Hebrew dates of birth and death. You can also browse by surname or read about the history of the Jewish community in New Haven.
