Re: How to correct information in Jewishgen Databases #records

Sally Bruckheimer

"The records that have been uploaded to jewishgen, certainly to JRI-PL, have usually been rudimetarily translated by poeple working for the archives. They are not in depth and names are sometimes not recognized correctly because the translators often are not familiar with Yiddish names"

This may have been true at one time, but volunteers now translate, at least for JRI-PL, for those records that are copied one way or another.
