JOWBR Grows to Over 3.1 Million Records! #general

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update to the
JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR
database can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're
a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast page at
www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 80,000 new records and 14,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 265 cemeteries. This update
brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.13 million records and 535,000 photos from
approximately 7,100 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 125
countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

Significant additions to the database include collections >from Belarus
(courtesy of our new partnership with Chesed Shel Emet), Moldova (Bessarabia
SIG), additional French and German cemetery sets, and United States new and
updated sets (Veterans Administration records, Home of Eternity Cemetery
(Oakland, CA) United Hebrew Bretheren Cemetery (Richfield, MN), various MA
cemeteries (JGSGB). for a complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR,
please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to
find and gain permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennett, Lineke Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellman,
Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Deborah Ross, Marylin Shalks, and
Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to
make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that
would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

Memorial Plaques Database Grows to More Than 157,000 Records. Please help us grow! #general

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 21,000 records and 20,000 photos >from 22
synagogues in the United States and Canada. This update brings the Memorial
Plaques holdings to 157,000 records and 115,000 photos >from approximately
250 synagogues / institutions representing 9 countries.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have

www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 80,000 new records and 14,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 265 cemeteries. This update
brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.13 million records and 535,000 photos from
approximately 7,100 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 125
countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

Significant additions to the database include collections >from Belarus
(courtesy of our new partnership with Chesed Shel Emet), Moldova (Bessarabia
SIG), additional French and German cemetery sets, and United States new and
updated sets (Veterans Administration records, Home of Eternity Cemetery
(Oakland, CA) United Hebrew Bretheren Cemetery (Richfield, MN), various MA
cemeteries (JGSGB). for a complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR,
please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to
find and gain permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennett, Lineke Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellman,
Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Deborah Ross, Marylin Shalks, and
Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to
make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that
would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 21,000 records and 20,000 photos >from 22
synagogues in the United States and Canada. This update brings the Memorial
Plaques holdings to 157,000 records and 115,000 photos >from approximately
250 synagogues / institutions representing 9 countries.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

For a complete listing of the institutions currently in the database, please
