Ceramic and Etched Photos on Headstones

Approximately 3,400 photographs of the ceramic images that are found on headstones in a number of cemeteries in Greater Cleveland were provided as a genealogical act of kindness by Paul Klein, a member of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Cleveland, assisted by Vicki Vigil, another society member.

The cemeteries included in this index are: Bet Olam, Glenville, Lansing, Mt. Olive, Mt. Sinai, Ridge Road #1 (Chesed Shel Emeth), Ridge Road #2, Lincoln (Workmen's Circle), and Zion Memorial Park.
