I have found a data base that I would like to see added to Jewishgen (or
and wondered how to go about seeing it happen.
Several years ago I went through a microfilm which included circumcision
records for Rodeph Shalom Congregation in Philadelphia. These records
begin in 1848 and end around 1864. At the time I xeroxed about 10 pages
(including the entire index) and I also have entered some of the
information on my computer.
I have information >from the actual records the following surnames (about
100 fathers representing about 200 sons , however no translation of the

I have recently been in contact with the Hebrew Jewish Archives in
Cincinnati. I have requested that the approximately 200 pages of records and an additional 20 pages of their early marriage records be xeroxed and sent to me. When they arrive, I would like to get ALL of the information into a data base. However, these records do include Hebrew which I can not read.
Please contact me if you would be willing to help me translate the
Hebrew or help with any other work on this project. Each page probably has only around 8 records and several people >from Gersig have offered to lend their support.
