JOWBR Update - JOWBR Grows to Over 3.3 Million Records! #warsaw #poland

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.

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

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

Looking for ghostwriters who helped survivors write their memoirs in the 1990's #warsaw #poland

lisaglen18@...
 

Does anyone know of any ghostwriters who were hired who specialized in helping write memoirs of Holocaust survivors? My father lived in LA until 2001 and had a ghostwriter write a manuscript for him in the 1990's. Unfortunately, it was thrown out and never published. I am searching the ghostwriter that he would have hired to help him to see if perhaps he retained a copy of the manuscript.

Thank you,
Lisa Glenner

Dear Genners,

I posted a request about a week ago, for a tombstone picture >from Oak
Woods Cemetery in Chicago Illinois. In the space of 48 hours I had
received 6 offers of pictures, everything >from people willing to go to
the cemetery to the Chicago Jewish Historical Society sending actual
pictures. The absolute generosity displayed by fellow Genners is
heartwarming, And I would like to publicly thank all those who
responded.

I would also like to offer cemetery lookups in Cincinnati Ohio. I
don't have a lot of free time but am willing to do some cemetery runs.

Thank you again for all your support.

MARCULESCU in Israel #romania

Bob Friedman
 

I'm searching for family or friends of Dinu MARCULESCU (born circa 1904,
probably in Bucharest,Romania) and/or his brother (given name unknown).
They both most likely immigrated to Israel in the
early 1960s and are now buried there (dates & locations unknown).

Dinu's son Ovidiu was born in Bucharest in 1936, went to Israel about
1962, immigrated to NY in 1969, and died here in April of this year.

Dinu's wife Emma (maiden name BOSSEL) died in Aachen, Germany in 1981.

Please reply privately. Thank you!

Sachsenhausen Database: Need Volunteers #germany

Lande
 

As part of the USHMMs continuing effort to make information available on
line, including links to relevant documents, I could use six volunteers to
enter Sachsenhausen information into an Excel database. The information
consists of typed pages giving the names of men arrested/released in 1938
after Kristallnacht. I propose to send each volunteer about ten pages -most
pages have less than a dozen names. Knowledge of German is not
needed - simply enter as it appears.

Requirements: Excel; Diacritics e.g umlauts; Careful entry
Fairly prompt completion

Project No. 3: Wuerttemberg Family Registers #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear all:

Yet another project. This one's for people who can deal with fairly ugly
records in German handwriting, and for people who would like to set up
spreadsheets for others to complete. It's larger than the others I just
announced.

Wuerttemberg is renowned among genealogists for its carefully-kept
family registers. On one sheet, one can find the dates & places of
birth, marriage and death of the head of household and spouse(s); the
names of the parents of each one; and the names of the children, along
with their dates of birth, etc. and possibly a cross-reference to the
sheet for the family that *they* established. Emigration is often noted,
as well. The ones in question were kept for most of the 19thC and into
the 20th; and some of the heads of household were born well before 1750.

The Baden-Wuerttemberg collection of Gatermann films--the first one to
appear on line--contains over 150 registers of this kind >from over 70
localities. Some of them duplicate others, but in the interest of
maximum legibility, I think it's best to index them all. Since these are
Gatermann films, there are no originals left to check.

As with the Hessen Gatermann project, I propose making a short index,
i.e., not transcribing most of the detailed information. Here's what I
think we should capture:

--locality

--item number in the collection

--image and/or sheet number

--Role (husband, wife, 2nd wife, etc.)

--For heads of households and spouses:

----Given name and surname

----Year and town of birth

Many if not most of these communities were relatively small, meaning
that users of the index will want to check several, if not all the
sheets in a set, because it's generally likely that people with the same
surname were in fact of the same family. That's why indexing the parents
ought to be sufficient. (If we were doing everyone on a sheet, the
project would take years and years.)

This is another project where people who can't read the handwriting can
contribute by entering the first 4 items on the list above, and
otherwise setting up an entry grid.

Here is a spreadsheet containing a list of registers and an example of
the index. https://tinyurl.com/WuerttFamReg

Please email me at this address if you'd like to participate.
