The Jewish Cemetery Association of Massachusetts has placed 55,000 burial records of the association's more than 100 cemeteries online. Best of all, the records are available at no charge.
To search the database, go to http://www.jcam.org, click on "Services," then click "Genealogical Search" and then enter the name (or just the first four letters of the last name). Next, click on SEARCH. The results returned show the name, burial location, name of cemetery, street name, and date of death of each record that matches the parameters you entered.
Some records may not be available for lack of date-of-death information. Due to poor record keeping from years ago, in some instances, information may be incorrect.
Records are only available for the Jewish Cemetery Association of Massachusetts' cemeteries.
