New GerSIG Website #germany


Alex Calzareth
 

The German-Jewish Special Interest Group (GerSIG) is excited to
announce that our new website is now available at
www.jewishgen.org/gersig . This website builds upon the excellent
work of the late Arthur Obermayer, one of our SIG's founding
co-directors.

The new website focus has a geographic focus meaning that resources
are organized by state/province, district and town. To get started
click on the name of the province/state on the left side of the home
page. You can also find a list of towns at
https://www.jewishgen.org/GerSIG/GEO_townlist.asp?start=634 . We are
still working to complete a comprehensive list of the thousand of
towns and cities within Germany that once had Jewish communities so
the website is very much a work in progress.

All information >from the old website has been transferred over and new
information has been added. An overview of the website's pages can be
found on our site map at https://www.jewishgen.org/GerSIG/sitemap.asp

We need your help to build up the resources on our new site. Please
consider filling out our resource survey at
https://goo.gl/forms/030uuvDYWWdtOnKt1 to provide information on
websites, books, archival resources and other publications for the
towns that you are researching. If you have more than a handful of
resources, please download the Excel template at

GerSIGweb@gmail.com. We also welcome any step-by-step instructional
guides or long-form articles.
