Cleveland Jewish News Obituary Database

Compiled by Helen Wolf

This is a database of 30,850 obituary notices which appeared in the Cleveland Jewish News, compiled by Helen Wolf.  The index covers Oct 30 1964 through Dec 31 2012.  For each entry, the index contains the deceased's name, date of death, and in which issue of the Cleveland Jewish News the obituary appeared.  Each entry usually contains the deceased's age, birthplace, and maiden name.  The name of the cemetery is occasionally noted.

The Cleveland Jewish News is an independent publication in existence since 1964 serving the greater Cleveland Ohio area.  CJN is published weekly with a paid circulation of approximately 14,000. The full text of the obituaries can be accessed online on their website by subscribing to their archive service.

Due to the increasing number of requests for obituary information, please be advised that the Cleveland Jewish News (CJN) will charge $15.00 for up to three obituary requests made at the same time.  This charge must be paid in advance of the obituary notices being copied and mailed to the requesting party.

All obituary requests should be made to LifeCycles at the CJN:  (216) 454-8300 ext. 217, with payment sent to the CJN at:  23880 Commerce Park, Suite 1, Beachwood, Ohio 44122.

We hope to update the data semi-annually.
