Jewish Cemeteries in Indianapolis Now Online
The Indianapolis Star has a lengthy article about a recently completed project to create databases of the burials at the 11 Jewish cemeteries in Indianapolis. The cemeteries are along Kelly Street on the city's south side and include the cemetery for Indianapolis Hebrew Congregation, which was the city's first synagogue. There are some 5,600 burials listed in the databases. Gloria Green and volunteers from Congregation Beth-El Zedeck spent 3 years on the project. The cemetery databases are online as part of JewishGen.
