Cemetery desecration and JOWBR #general

Nolan Altman <NAltman@...>
 

Saul Issroff's recent South Africa SIG post regarding the desecration at the
Muizenberg Cemetery, South Africa, reminds us of the importance of indexing and
photographing headstones >from Jewish cemeteries around the world. This will
create a permanent virtual record of the memorials to our ancestors.

With currently over 1.2 million burial records, JewishGen's international
burial registry, JOWBR - JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry--
encourages individuals, local JGS groups, synagogue groups, and other
community or genealogical associations to index and photograph headstones in
their areas and add these records to the JOWBR database. We are happy to
add acknowledgements to volunteers and donors or add links to websites in
our Cemetery Description field when requested.

I am helping a friend who is trying to locate his first cousin and
descendants who disappeared after the war. He was, apparently, the
only survivor in the KNOLLER family.

Julius KNOLLER was born in Berlin Germany in 1919.
He last registered at Berlin-Tiergarten, Siegmundshof 15 in 1938.
He gave notice of his departure to Antwerp Belgium in 1938.

The Baron de Hirsch - De la Savane Cemetery, Montreal, Canada #general

Michael Hoffman
 

If there is anybody visiting The Baron de Hirsch - De la Savane Cemetery,
Montreal in the very near future, would some kind soul take some digital
photographs of 2 graves for me. In exchange for the photographs I would be
able to visit most of the Jewish Cemeteries located in North London and
Northern Home Counties.

The information for the graves are as follows >from the JewishGen Online
World Burial Registery :

Louis Hussies: Plot: Line 11, Grave 8
Clara Hussies: Plot: Line 12, Grave 56

Just a little background about Louis Hussies, he was born in Riga, Latvia
and with his mother, father and a sister immigrated to Hull, UK in about
1885,during WWI he served in the British Army and was awarded the Military
Medal (MM) at the end of the Great War for bravery.

My interest in him is that his sister Sarah Hussies married Solomon Berger
the youngest brother of my grand father Marks Berger.
