Re: IAJGS International Jewish Cemetery Project site migrated to new address

Hilary Henkin

This is wonderful news.

Thanks to all who worked on keeping this site available.  I had carefully bookmarked its URL for several years because it seemed to be "forgotten."  (Even now, it is difficult to find at JewishGen.)

It serves a very different purpose than the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry.  While the JOWBR documents individual burials, and contains information about people, the Cemetery Project documents the cemeteries themselves.  If you want to know which possible locations in a given city might contain Jewish burials, this site does that.  If you want to know who is managing a cemetery,  or contact information, or history of a cemetery, use the IAJGS Jewish Cemetery Project.

Some of the information may be older, but it is still very useful.  One suggestion:  While there is a link from the Cemetery Project home page to the JOWBR home page, there is no reciprocal link from the JOWBR to the Cemetery Project.)

Thanks Ellen, Mary,  Kitty, and everyone else who have kept this project!

Please let us know if you have any issues with the updated site.
