Scandinavia SIG #Scandinavia JOWBR Submissions - more info #scandinavia

Yesterday I posted a message that informed you of the cut-off date for
submissions to the JOWBR database for the June upload. I received a
number of emails regarding questions that I should have addressed in
that email.

If you're not familiar with JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial
Registry), please take a look at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm
JOWBR currently has in excess of 1.3 million records >from 45 countries.

The only way we can keep track of what records are in JOWBR and what
records are still needed is to require submissions to include complete
cemetery or cemetery section records. To see which cemeteries and
cemetery sections are already included in JOWBR, please see
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm

For more information on how to submit data and photos, please see
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm#JOWBR
or now you can watch screencasts at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

For all those that are interested in submitting burial records and or
photos to the JOWBR database, our next cut off date will be May 31st.
Any data /photos that are submitted by then will be included in the
June update prior to the conference.

If you can't submit records in time, consider planning an indexing project
for the spring/summer season (for our Northern Hemisphere readers) and the
fall/winter season (for our Southern Hemisphere readers).

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact me at
NAltman@JewishGen.org Sorry for any confusion.
