Visit JewishGen's New Website #belarus

Nancy Siegel
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce our newly designed website at
www.JewishGen.org. We commissioned the creation of a new landing page
to serve as a launching point for the main components of the website.
The site is built on a modern, secure platform, which is beneficial
for a number of reasons, including:

*It has a more intuitive and user-friendly design,
*It is mobile-responsive, and
*It has a more familiar platform, which will make it easier for us to
find qualified consultants, contractors and volunteers to help us in
the future.

This is not the final plan. It's a stop-gap redesign that addresses
some of the shortcomings of our website by creating a visually
appealing, mobile-friendly, and easy to navigate homepage that
researchers can utilize to find key components on the JewishGen site.
While we attracted approximately one million unique visitors to the
JewishGen site last year, only a small portion of this group actually
registered or became regular users. We anticipate that an enhanced
website will improve these results.

Specifically, we hope the new landing page will help guide researchers to:

*Search the online collection
*Locate ancestral communities
*Explore life in their ancestral communities
*Join our discussion groups
*Volunteer, and
*Donate.

Over the next two months, we will begin crafting a proper technology
strategy, which will include our website and databases. In the
meantime, however, this new landing page will immediately help
researchers, while also demonstrating JewishGen's strategic focus.

Thank you to everyone on our staff and volunteer leadership team for
their suggestions and contributions to making this happen. Special
thanks to Scott Seidenstock, Gary Sandler, and Warren Blatt.

Please enjoy the site and visit www.JewishGen.org now. Feedback and
suggestions will be most welcome!

Laurie Kimmelstiel <ljkimmelstiel@...>

We are trying to locate information on my mother-in law's brother
Pierre (Anselm) HIRSCH who arrived in the US >from France on August 21,
1947 and returned to Paris a few years later. The last contact we
have >from him was in the early 1960s. There has been no further
contact. He was born Anselm HIRSCH in Frankfurt in 1923 to Camilla
WERTHEIMER and Jacob HIRSCH. The family moved to France in late 1933
and settled in Paris until 1940 when the family moved frequently
throughout France to keep ahead of the Nazis. They used the name
lAMBERT during the war years and Anselm became Pierre. We have tried
to obtain information over the years to no avail but, perhaps new
materials may be available to tell us what happened to him.Merci,
Thank you in advance.
