Belarus SIG #Belarus Help Grow JOWBR - Next Update #belarus


Nolan Altman
 

The next update to JewishGen's JOWBR Database (JewishGen's Online Worldwide
Burial Registry) (http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/) will be at
year-end and will include all submissions made through November 30. Per
JOWBR's requirements, submissions should include complete cemeteries or
cemetery sections, not individual family burial information.

JOWBR currently contains over 2 million Jewish burial records >from 81
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:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

If you have any questions, please contact me at NAltman@JewishGen.org

Thank you in advance for your help!
