Shlomo Katz <SKATZ@...>
Like everyone else, I'm thrilled that the databse is on-line.
I have already discovered that a half-sister of my grandmother
survived the Holocaust. (I know this because she submitted a
page of testimony for their brother.)
Unfortunately, my grandmother never knew this.
However, be cautious. I have found multiple entries submitted by
obviously well-meaning but misinformed people. For example,
for one relative who I know was born in 1874, different entries
give various birthdates between 1870 and 1890 for what is obviously
the same person (same parents, same wife, same occupation).
So, enjoy, but be careful.
