Selected Southern Jewish Databases

Meet Lynn Franklin

Editor's Note: Beginning in 2005, Lynn Franklin and her husband, Bob Sweeney, of Memphis, Tennessee, began compiling cemetery listings, photographs and other documentary records for selected Jewish cemeteries in the Southern United States. In those cases where Lynn has taken photos of the grave markers, you can see the photo by clicking on the surname of the decedent, or sometimes on the marker plot number to the right hand side of the record. A list of the communities with links to the individual cemtery listings is provided on the top page at

Selected Southern Jewish Databases As time goes by, we will also add obituaries, death notices and other relevant information to these historical records.
