Many of you may have noticed that Steve Morse's One-Step site is down.
Here is a statement >from Steve explaining the problem. I do not have
any further information, and this is not the start of a thread.
Responses will not be posted. Please be patient and wait for the
required period to pass. At that point we can expect the site to

An individual has filed a false DMCA complaint to my hosting provider
claiming that she holds the copyright to a picture that appears on my
website. It turns out that anyone can make such a claim, and whether
it is true or not, the hosting provider must suspend the site for a
period of two weeks under DMCA rules while waiting for the complaining
party to provide proof.

My apologies to all of you for any inconvenience that the site closure
has caused you. I anticipate that the site should be back up by June
16 at the latest.

Memorial Plaques Database Grows to More Than 82,000 Records. Please help us
grow!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2015 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 8,000 records and 6,000 photos >from Canada and the US.
These records come >from 15 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

New JewishGen Success Stories ! #germany

We present four new inspiring stories in the latest issue of
JewishGen's SUCCESS! STORIES webzine. You can access these stories
from the "About Us" button on our website or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen/testimonials/index.htm

Peter Vanlaw learned that his family was Jewish when he was 51 years
old. Through a connection he makes via JewishGen's Family Finder, he
learns about the family that had been kept a secret >from him all those
years.

Stella Saperstein knew nothing about her American family while she was
growing up in the former Soviet Union. After several unsuccessful
research efforts, she connects with her previously unknown cousin
through JewishGen's Family Finder.

Carol Clingan obtains a copy of Sarah Cohen's obituary that lists two
surviving sons. She knew of one of the sons, but who was Sam Bloom?
She contacts another researcher who listed the Bloom name in
JewishGen's Family Finder. It turns out he has the other piece of the
puzzle!

Robin Koerner updates her story >from January 2015, telling us of the
Maniches family reunion in Montevideo, Uruguay. It was more than 100
years ago when the ancestors of these families had been together in
Krynki, Poland. Now a connection through JewishGen's Family Finder
brings them together.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel,
Editor and Anna Blanchard, Webmaster. We hope you will be inspired by
these stories and we encourage you to submit your own success stories
to us at success@lyris.jewishgen.org .

JOWBR Pre-Conference Update #germany

Nolan Altman
 

JOWBR Grows to Over 2.4 Million Records!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2015 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 70,000 new records and 21,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 570 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 2.4 million records >from more than 5,400 cemeteries /
cemetery sections representing 115 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 instrumental in the
growth of foreign veteran and foreign country burials. Eric works with a
team of data entry volunteers; Alla Aizenberg, Sandra Bennett, Julie Bolton,
Sharon Duckman, Helen Furnell, Henry Graupner, Guy Haber, Ann Meddin
Hoffmann, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Renee Payne, Amit
Pinsler, Yael Polat, Irina Roskin, Rebecca Stern, Suzanne Tarica, Nicholas
Trokiner, 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 Austria, the
Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Romania, Scotland, Ukraine and the
United States. 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.

Peter Vanlaw learned that his family was Jewish when he was 51 years

helearns about the family that had been kept a secret >from him all
those years.

Stella Saperstein knew nothing about her American family while she
was growing up in the former Soviet Union. After several
unsuccessful research efforts, she connects with her previously
unknown cousin through JewishGen's Family Finder.

Carol Clingan obtains a copy of Sarah Cohen's obituary that lists two
surviving sons. She knew of one of the sons, but who was Sam
Bloom? She contacts another researcher who listed the Bloom name
in JewishGen's Family Finder. It turns out he has the other piece of
the puzzle!

Robin Koerner updates her story >from January 2015, telling us of the
Maniches family reunion in Montevideo, Uruguay. It was more than
100 years ago when the ancestors of these families had been
together in Krynki, Poland. Now a connection through JewishGen's
