descendants of Juda Lobl Popper #austria-czech

rfc974@...
 

Hi folks:

I wanted to let folks know that I have privately printed a book for
the descendants of Juda Lobl Popper (geni profile
https://www.geni.com/people/Juda-Popper/6000000033977058838?through=6000000019109627451)
into the early 20th century. It contains a number of photos and
family stories. I believe I've made most family members aware of the
book. But I'm sure I've missed a few, so this note is to let them
know. (You can easily check your relationship to Juda Lobl Popper via
geni).

If you are a family member and are interested in the book, you can
purchase it at cost (I make no money) at
www.lulu.comm/shop/craig-partridge/descendants-of-juda-lobl-popper/hardcover/product-22910853.html

Thanks!

Craig

Memorial Plaques Database Grows to More Than 136,000 Records (Year-End Update) #poland #ciechanow

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its year-end 2016 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 30,000 records and 7,900 photos from
Croatia, Israel, Italy, the United States and Wales. These records come from
24 different synagogues and other institutions.

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

JOWBR Breaks Through 3 Million Record Mark! (JOWBR Year-End Update) #ciechanow #poland

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2016 year end 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 172,000 new records and 21,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 590 cemeteries. This update
brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.05 million records >from more than 6,800
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.

The 3 most significant additions to JOWBR add burial records >from 2
London cemeteries and 1 Chicago suburban cemetery.
JGSGB (jgsgb.org.uk/) and JCR-UK (www.jewishgen.org/JCR-uk/) have been working
with the Federation of Synagogues (www.federationofsynagogues.com/) to make
available the details of burials at the Federation's Edmonton and Rainham
cemeteries.
The JGS of Illinois (www.jgsi.org) submitted data >from the Westlawn Cemetery
in Norridge, Illinois.

In addition to those additions, other significant additions to the
database include collections >from Germany, Romania (Arad), Czech Republic
(Praha-Zizkov and Straznice), France, Moldova, Turkey (Istanbul), Croatia
(Zagreb), Colombia (Medellin), Ukraine (Dnipropetrovsk) and the United
States. 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 Alla
Aizenberg, Sandra Bennett, Lineke Bos, Andre Convers, Pia Crook, Sharon
Duckman, George Goldschmied, Henry Graupner, Ann Meddin Hellman, Maurice
Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Irene Newhouse, Hans Nord, Irina Roskin, Marylin
Shalks, Isaac Shapiro, Suzanne Tarica, Michael Waas, and Valerie White. 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.
