Thank you for the reminder by Eva Florsheim, "We must hurry up to
document the remains of
Jewish life in Galicia, before nature and time erase what is still
there." Her comment is most appropriate. It is the reason why
JewishGen believes that the Online Worldwide Burial Registry is so
important. It is vital that we record what remains of Jewish
tombstones and make this data available to everyone.
If you are not familiar with this project and how you can help,
please see http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/. In short we
want to document the tombstones worldwide-- in central and eastern
Europe as well as the landsmanschaft plots in the United States, in
Israel as well as in South and Central America, in South Africa as
well as in Egypt and Turkey. Time is running out.
