Re: How to correct information in Jewishgen Databases #records

Eric, it depends on which database. If you click through to the info link on a given database, the page that tells you about the origin and contents of the database often has contact info for the project. Some projects are more active than others, and in some cases updating the data is very cumbersome so it may take a while for a volunteer to be able to address that. If there's a clear transcription error it should get queued for correction, though that may take months. There are likely some databases with no active or reachable maintainer, in which case I'd suggest reaching out to one of the leaders of the appropriate SIG or research group.
