Re: Launch of Online Resource of Jewish Cemeteries in Turkey With Over 61,000 Gravestones #sephardic #announcements


This database is described as the “largest tombstone database in the world“ which is simply not true. 


The search interface relegates NAMES to one of the last search parameters and the names do not appear in the results tables!  You cannot see the names unless you click on each individual link. Most of the search parameters are not needed by the vast majority of researchers.


They do not offer any kind of soundex, phonetic, fuzzy etc searches – only exact spelling (but I think wildcards work). 



There appear to be only 353 records in the database, not 61,000 (it IS a beta system).

Hopefully they will enhance and improve this.
