JewishGen is proud to announce its 2014 year-end report for the
Memorial Plaques Project database. The MPP database can be accessed
at

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/

The MPP database includes the data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from
synagogue and other organizations. Many of these sources include
patronymic information.

This update adds approximately 15,000 new records and 11,000 new
photos >from 20 synagogues/organizations. The database now includes
more than 75,500 records >from the US, Israel Canada and Morocco.
These records come >from 111 different synagogues and other
institutions.

We believe that the MPP 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

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2014 year end update to the
JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The
JOWBR database can be accessed at

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/

If you're a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast
page at

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

and take a look at the first two explanatory screencasts.

This update adds approximately 102,100 new records and 45,200
new photos. The database is adding and/or updating 639 cemeteries.
This update brings JOWBR's holdings to 2.37 million records >from
almost 4,970 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 104 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.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping
me to find and gain permission to add many of the German towns in
addition to records >from under-represented countries. Eric's group of
volunteers includes Alla Aizenberg, Sharon Duckman, Helen Furnell,
Henry Graupner, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Amit Pinsler, Guy Haber,
Sari Tuomioja, and Paula Zieselman. In addition, without our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, we would not be able to add
the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

Significant additions to the database include collections from
Johannesburg Cemeteries - Braamfontein Cemetery, Brixton Cemetery,
and West Park Cemetery.
Moldovan Cemeteries - Balti, Doyna Cemetery (Saint Lazarus Cemetery,
and Tiraspol.
Berlin, Germany's Weissensee Cemetery.
Stockholm, Sweeden's Sodra Judiska Begravningsplatsen.
Switzerland's Jewish cemetery in Veyrier.
Rabat, Morocco's Cimetiere Israelite (Vieux) in Rabat
Lomza, Poland's Jewish Cemetery
Chernivtsi, Ukraine
Home of Peace (San Jose) Cemetery in San Jose, California
Montrepose Cemetery in Kingston, NY
Also included in this update are thousands of records in the
first installment of Jewish veteran burials in military cemeteries
predominantly >from World War I in France, Italy and Belgium and
other cemeteries around the world.

This update also includes our first records >from 19 new
countries, many are for veteran burials; Angola, Bahrain, Bulgaria,
Cambodia, Cape Verde, Colombia, Cyprus, Ethiopia, Ghana, Iceland,
Lebanon, Madagascar, Malawi, Monaco, Mongolia, Norway, Pakistan,
Philippines, and Uzbekistan.

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.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you

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 2014 year-end report for the
Memorial Plaques Project database. The MPP database can be accessed
at

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/

The MPP database includes the data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from
synagogue and other organizations. Many of these sources include
patronymic information.

This update adds approximately 15,000 new records and 11,000 new
photos >from 20 synagogues/organizations. The database now includes
more than 75,500 records >from the US, Israel Canada and Morocco.

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

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2014 year end update to the
JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The
JOWBR database can be accessed at

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/

If you're a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast
page at

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

and take a look at the first two explanatory screencasts.

This update adds approximately 102,100 new records and 45,200
new photos. The database is adding and/or updating 639 cemeteries.
This update brings JOWBR's holdings to 2.37 million records >from
almost 4,970 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 104 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.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping
me to find and gain permission to add many of the German towns in
addition to records >from under-represented countries. Eric's group of
volunteers includes Alla Aizenberg, Sharon Duckman, Helen Furnell,
Henry Graupner, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Amit Pinsler, Guy Haber,
Sari Tuomioja, and Paula Zieselman. In addition, without our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, we would not be able to add
the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

Significant additions to the database include collections from
Johannesburg Cemeteries - Braamfontein Cemetery, Brixton Cemetery,
and West Park Cemetery.
Moldovan Cemeteries - Balti, Doyna Cemetery (Saint Lazarus Cemetery,
and Tiraspol.
Berlin, Germany's Weissensee Cemetery.
Stockholm, Sweeden's Sodra Judiska Begravningsplatsen.
