If you know the English name of the deceased, click the <Srch E.Name> button to search by English Name. If you know the Hebrew Name of the deceased, click the <Srch H. Name> button. In each case, the system will prompt you to enter the English or Hebrew name of the deceased. The system will locate all deceased records that match the name you entered. In many instances, the system will find more than one record that matches. Then you would use the <Prev> and <Next> buttons to browse through the records that match the search.

When you're finished browsing and updating the group that match the search criteria, you may click the <Cancel Srch> button to return to browsing all Yahrzeit. Likewise, if you know the date of death in English or Hebrew Date format, you can use the <Srch E. Date> and <Srch H. Date> respectively.
