JewishGen is proud to announce its 2014 pre-Conference Update for the
Memorial Plaque Project (MPP) 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 year, we added more than 30,000 records >from the US, Israel and Canada.
These records come >from 35 different synagogues and other institutions. A
big thank you to the work being done by the JGS of Greater Boston, The
Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina, the JGS of Montreal, and a
number of synagogues and individual donors.

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 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 Grows to Over 2 Million Records #belarus

bounce-2807367-772948@...
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2014 pre-Conference 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 take a look at the first two
explanatory screencasts at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

This update adds approximately 124,000 new records and 25,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 190 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 2.27 million records >from almost 4,400 cemeteries /
cemetery sections representing 85 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donors' 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. 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 Cleveland,
Ohio and surrounding areas, Leeds, England, various German towns, Bialystok,
Poland, Chernigov, Ukraine, Shanghai, China, and an annual update >from the
US Veterans Administration. Please check our online cemetery inventory at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a complete
listing.

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.

New to the Gesher Galicia Map Room: Debica 1849 Cadastral Map! #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

Gesher Galicia announces the addition of a new cadastral map to the
Gesher Galicia Cadastral Map Room:

"Debica Town Cadastral Map 1849"

A complete full-color lithographed cadastral map of the town of Debica
(Dembica, Dembitz, Debica), >from 1849. Land parcels and houses are
all clearly numbered; redline manuscript revisions show changes >from
the 1849 edition intended for a later update. The map includes both
masonry and wooden buildings, a market square, two synagogues and
a large church complex, plus a Jewish and a Catholic cemetery. This
map depicts the town before its boom period in the latter half of the
19th century, when it became a crossroads on Imperial rail lines
connecting Lwow, Krakow, and Sandomierz. Images for this map were
provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum Panstwowe w Przemyslu.

Direct link:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/debica-dembica-1849/

Today, Debica is a town in southeastern Poland with 46,693 inhabitants,
the capital of Debica County and since 1999 it has been situated in the
Podkarpackie Voivodeship; it had previously been in the Tarnow
Voivodeship. The town is part of the Kolbuszowa Region Research Group
(KRRG) and there is a wealth of descriptive information on the town
here:

http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/kolbuszowa/debica/debica.html

Especially interesting, in light of what this map shows and the
historical background provided in the descriptive text, is the English
translation >from the Polish Geographical Dictionary (Slownik
Geograficzny Krolestwa Polskiego - Warsaw 1881) written 32 years
later, provided by William F. Hoffman:

http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/kolbuszowa/debica/debica10.html

Thanks to Gesher Galicia's Map Room coordinator, Jay Osborn, for
getting this new map online and to the Polish State Archives in
Przemsyl for their cooperation.

To view the entire map room collection go to:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org

and to read and FAQ on the history of cadastral maps in the
Austro-Hungarian Empire go to:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/references/index.html

Read about our Cadastral Map & Landowner Records Project:

http://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/cadastral-map-and-landowner-records/

Even if you are not a Debica researcher, I urge you to take a tour of
this charming, pastel-colored 1849 incarnation of a shtetl by clicking
the map link above and zooming in to (virtually) stroll around its
streets and neighborhoods.

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

This update adds approximately 124,000 new records and 25,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 190 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 2.27 million records >from almost 4,400 cemeteries /
cemetery sections representing 85 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donors' 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. 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 Cleveland,
Ohio and surrounding areas, Leeds, England, various German towns, Bialystok,
Poland, Chernigov, Ukraine, Shanghai, China, and an annual update >from the
US Veterans Administration. Please check our online cemetery inventory at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a complete
listing.

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.

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2014 pre-Conference Update for the
Memorial Plaque Project (MPP) 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 year, we added more than 30,000 records >from the US, Israel and Canada.
These records come >from 35 different synagogues and other institutions. A
big thank you to the work being done by the JGS of Greater Boston, The
Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina, the JGS of Montreal, and a
number of synagogues and individual donors.

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 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
see http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/tree/MemList.htm
