JOWBR Grows Past the 3.4 Million Record Mark!

JewishGen is proud to announce its latest 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 116,600 new records and 29,800 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 430 cemeteries. This
update brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.45 million records >from close to
8,000 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 128 countries!

Please note, this update only includes submissions that were made
through last November 30th. Anything that was submitted after that will
be in the June pre-Conference update. If you have new material to submit,
please do so by May 31st to be included in the next update.

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 additions to JOWBR by country include:

. Argentina - approximately 11,300 records >from new and existing

cemeteries

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been finding and
gaining permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennet, Lyn Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellmann,
Maurice Kessler, Hans Nord, Marilyn Shalks, Deborah Ross, Molly Mark
Strauss, 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.

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 latest 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 116,600 new records and 29,800 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 430 cemeteries. This
update brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.45 million records >from close to
8,000 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 128 countries!

Please note, this update only includes submissions that were made
through last November 30th. Anything that was submitted after that will

please do so by May 31st to be included in the next update.

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals,

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been finding and
gaining permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennet, Lyn Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellmann,
Maurice Kessler, Hans Nord, Marilyn Shalks, Deborah Ross, Molly Mark
Strauss, 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.
