Ruth,

I am not sure that this will ultimately help you but there is a
German-Austrian book by Elisabeth Buxbaum, Transit Shanghai, Edition
Steinbauer, Wien (Vienna) 2008. While I don't think that the book
itself would be particularly helpful (except for maybe the
bibliography listing her extensive sources), it might be worth a try
to contact Ms. Buxbaum. Maybe she has an idea where you could look
further. A very superficial Google search did not reveal any email
address for her but the publisher's general email address is
presse@edition-steinbauer.com. They might be able to forward an
inquiry... Best regards,

Irene Peters, Berlin, Germany iupfamilyresearch@gmail.com

Synagogue Square Jurbarkas - Yurburg #lithuania

Carol Hoffman
 

Three generations of the Zundelevitch family >from Jurbarkas unveiled a
remarkable memorial to the Jews of Yurburg this July 2019 in
Lithuania. Two excellent descriptions can be found at
https://www.newartistscollegium.com/synagogue-square-memorial and also
at https://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Memorial-to-Jewish-community-unveiled-in-Lithuanian-town-596364.

More than 2000 names have been carved in stone, literally, in the
central square of Jurbarkas where once stood the main shul of the
town. The family, all born in Vilnius and now living in Israel
conceived of the idea together with sculptor David Zundelovitch
leading, his children Gregory Zundelevitch served as art director, and
Anna Zundelovitch, architect and designer; third generation was
represented in singing the national anthems of Lithuania and Israel.

JOWBR Grows to Almost 3.6 Million Records! #general

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2019 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 144,000 new records and 24,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 570 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 3.59 million records and 648,000 photos from
approximately 8,200 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 128
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.

Please note, this update only includes submissions that were made through
last May 30th. Anything that was submitted after that will be in the
year-end update. If you have new material to submit, please do so by
November 30th to be included in the next update.

Significant additions to JOWBR by country include:

- Australia - approximately 800 records and 2,400 photos >from new and
existing cemeteries.
- Canada - 400 additional records and 4,300 photos, mostly from
Montreal, Quebec area cemeteries
- Czech Republic - approximately 5,000 new records and 3,400 photos
from 14 cemeteries
- England - 1,250 records and 250 photos >from 6 cemeteries
- France - 3,000 new records covering 121 new or existing cemeteries
- Germany - 10,000 new records and 2,000 photos covering 70 new or
existing cemeteries including 6,000 records >from Judischer Friedhof
Schonhauser Allee in Berlin.
- Moldova - added 1,5000 new records and photos >from 2 Bessarabia
cemeteries
- Morocco - added 1,600 new records and photos >from 2 Moroccan
cemeteries
- Netherlands - added 4,400 new records, including 4,300 >from Wassenar
- Poland - approximately 6,200 new records >from 23 new and existing
cemeteries including 5,100 >from 3 cemeteries in Wroclaw

2,000 >from Astrakhan
- United States - approximately 100,600 new records and 4,250 photos
for 24 new and 42 updated cemeteries including 91,200 records >from Mount
Sinai Memorial Parks and Mortuaries in Los Angeles

Please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a
complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR.

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.
