Reminder: Help Grow JOWBR - Next Update #general
The next update to JewishGen's JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial
Registry) Database (http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/) will be in
June and will include all submissions made through May 31. Per JOWBR's
requirements, submissions should include complete cemeteries or cemetery
sections, not individual family burial information.
JOWBR currently contains over 1.7 million Jewish burial records >from 65
countries. The database grows through the efforts of our donors; Jewish
Genealogical Societies, individuals, historical societies, cemetery
administrators, synagogues and Chevra Kadishas. If you are aware of
cemetery records that are not currently in our database, we would appreciate
if you could help us obtain them and help grow the database.
If you're interested in making a submission, please see "Submitting Data
to JOWBR" at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm
If you prefer, you can also watch our online screencasts that show you
how JOWBR works and will also walk you through the completion of the
standard templates, at:
