Attn: Those Making Ancestral Town Visits (JOWBR Request) #scandinavia

Nolan Altman

If you're considering a visit to your ancestral town this spring, summer or
fall, and will also be visiting the local cemetery, please consider taking
photos of the remaining headstones for submission to JewishGen's JOWBR
database. As you know, JewishGen's goal is to preserve genealogical
information for future generations and virtually preserving headstones,
especially if they include Hebrew patronymic names, is incredibly valuable
to researchers.

Please check our current Cemetery Inventory at to see if we already have any
data or photos for a particular cemetery and the date the last update was point duplicating work. Information on making submissions can be
found at
We request that submissions include complete, or near complete cemeteries,
not just family stones.

If you have any questions, please contact me at
