Memorial Plaques Update - Database Grows to More Than 177,500 Records. Please help us grow! #sephardic

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2018 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 8,400 records and 6,900 photos. This update
brings the Memorial Plaques holdings to 177,500 records and 124,000 photos
from 263 synagogues / institutions representing 11 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.

JOWBR Update - JOWBR Grows to Over 3.3 Million Records! #yizkorbooks

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2018 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 100,000 new records and 34,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 510 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 3.33 million records and 594,000 photos from
approximately 7,750 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.

Significant new and updated sets to the database include collections from
Belarus, Czech Republic, Moldova, France, Germany, England, Poland, Sweden,
Russia, Ukraine, United States and Zimbabwe. We've also added a large
number of Montreal, Canada headstone photos. For a complete listing please
see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for 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, Cori Plucer, 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.

Russia, Ukraine, United States and Zimbabwe. We've also added a large
number of Montreal, Canada headstone photos. For a complete listing please
see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for 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, Cori Plucer, 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 Update - Database Grows to More Than 177,500 Records. Please help us grow! #dna

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2018 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 8,400 records and 6,900 photos. This update
brings the Memorial Plaques holdings to 177,500 records and 124,000 photos
from 263 synagogues / institutions representing 11 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
