when I entered a last name I got 100+ records in addition to the one that I was hoping to find -- but there were only about 30 individuals represented in these records. I submitted over 20 reports of duplicate, triplicate, and quadruplicate entries
When they say "To date an estimated four and a half million Jews murdered in the Shoah have been commemorated in the database", does that mean four and a half million unique individuals (about 3/4 of the six million) or four and a half million records?

If this ratio -- an average of more than 3 records per unique individual and a number of individuals below 30% of the number of records -- is typical, then four and a half million records would be under one and a half million unique individuals (less than 1/4 of the six million).
