JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Yad Vashem - list of names #general


Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

I just received this morning the "Letter of information" >from the
French Comitee for Yad Vashem, in which they say that the database of
all the names sent to Yad Vashem >from the first days of its existence
will be online next June (around 3 millions names and more within a
few months).

On the other hand, on the web site of Yad Vashem (Israel),
http://www.yad-vashem.org.il/remembrance/temp_remembrance/temp_index_remembrance_digitizing.html
it's said : "This massive database, which is continuously expanded,
will be uploaded to Yad Vashem's website towards the end of the
summer 2004 as part of the significant events being held to mark Yad
Vashem's Jubilee Year."

We'll certainly learn more about it during the 24th IAJGS
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, next July.
