GUIDE TO PHILADELPHIA & SURROUNDING CEMETERIES
by ELAINE BUNNY KOLINSKY, Jewish Genealogist

The majority of the cemeteries listed below are entirely Jewish. Belvue had Jewish
sections with consecrated ground and/or those graves were removed to another
cemetery. Every attempt is being made to locate these reinterrments. If all of the
information is not in by the time this data must be in your hands, it will be forwarded
and updated at a later date.
The names of cemeteries typed in capitals are "active. Lower case indicates "closed."
The format I used is as follows:

Name of cemetery (meaning in English)
number and street address
city, state, zip
county
location (cross streets)
area code, phone number
hours
directions
contact person & their phone # if different
year opened
synagogue
size (30 or 3000 graves)
records
computer
Cemetery map:

Some old cemetery records are on microfilm at these two locations:

1. The Historical Society of PA, 1300 Locust Street (SW corner 13th & Locust),
Philadelphia, PA 19107, 215-732-6201; hours: T,Th, F 10-5 p.m., W-1-9 p.m., Sa- 10-5
Identification needed, $5.00 per day library research fee. In addition to records on
cemeteries, HSA has cemetery returns from the Board of Health 1803-1860 and death
records 1860-1915. The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania have microfilmed
collections of the following cemetery records. (some are also found on mf at the
Philadelphia Jewish Archive Center
Belvue Mikveh Israel
Har Jehuda * Mt Carmel
Hebrew Mutual Rodelph Shalom
Lafayette Rodelph Shalom
Mt Sinai Shevrah Bikur Cholim

2. Philadelphia Jewish Archive Center at the Balch Institute of Ethnic Study, 18 S 7th
Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106, 215-925-8090 Deeds of many cemeteries

3. City Archives of Philadelphia, 401 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19108, room
942, 215-686-1581 (8:30-5 p.m.) has, in addition to death records (up to 1915), an index
(3 rolls of microfilm) of Philadelphia Non Profit (some profit also) Incorporations 1799-
1957 and the original books. These charters include Philadelphia cemeteries, and
synagogues, Chevra Kadisha (landsmanshaften), beneficial associations/societies,
progressive aid/relief societies, congregations, vereins, lodges, hebrew academies/ladies
societies, nursery schools, Jewish war veterans, funds, foundations, fellowships, and other
genealogical names of interest. Elaine B. Kolinsky of JGSP has created a Jewish Index
of these Charters. She is in the process of cross referencing the names for easier access
and will do a search for a nominal fee.

The landsmanshaften lists Jon sent you are not typed in any computer. I will have to
reproduce all material for you in my computer on WORD PERFECT WINDOWS 5.1.
I have run out of time and will have to send them at a later date. The following sources
contain information on synagogues and cemeteries for Philadelphia:

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
