JewishGen's JOWBR Update - June 2016 #hungary

bounce-3163817-772961@...
 

JOWBR Grows to Over 2.8 Million Records!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2016 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 103,000 new records and 28,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 540 cemeteries. JOWBR now
includes 2.8 million records >from 6,400 cemeteries / cemetery sections
representing 123 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals,
Jewish genealogical societies, historical societies, synagogues, cemeteries
and museums. We appreciate all our donor's submissions and the
transliteration work done by a faithful group of JewishGen volunteers.

JewishGen wants to thank Eric Feinstein who has been instrumental
in sourcing and coordinating foreign records, especially >from France and
Germany. JewishGen would also like to thank Eric's team of data entry
volunteers; Sandra Bennett, Sharon Duckman, George Jiri Goldschmied, Henry
Graupner, Ann Meddin Hellman, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord,
Adina Schwartz, Marilyn Shalks, and Suzanne Tarica. In addition, JewishGen
thanks 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.

Significant additions to the database include collections from
Brazil (Rio de Janeiro area), France, Germany, Italy (Milan and Torino),
Moldova, Romania (Timisoara), Slovakia (Neologicky Cintorin), Ukraine
(Chernivtsi) and the United States. Check
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for a
complete listing of our inventory by location.

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.

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 23,000 records and 20,800 photos >from Argentina,
Israel, Slovakia, the US. These records come >from 46 different synagogues
and other institutions. The MPD database now includes 128,800 records and
89,000 photos >from more than 200 organizations covering 6 countries.

Significant additions to the database include collections from
Argentina and Slovakia as well as Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, and
Texas in the US. For details on the contents of the database, please check
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/tree/MemList.htm for a complete
listing of our inventory by location.

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 additional questions, please contact me directly.

JewishGen's JOWBR Update - June 2016 #poland

Nolan Altman
 

JOWBR Grows to Over 2.8 Million Records!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2016 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 103,000 new records and 28,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 540 cemeteries. JOWBR now
includes 2.8 million records >from 6,400 cemeteries / cemetery sections
representing 123 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals,
Jewish genealogical societies, historical societies, synagogues, cemeteries
and museums. We appreciate all our donor's submissions and the
transliteration work done by a faithful group of JewishGen volunteers.

JewishGen wants to thank Eric Feinstein who has been instrumental
in sourcing and coordinating foreign records, especially >from France and
Germany. JewishGen would also like to thank Eric's team of data entry
volunteers; Sandra Bennett, Sharon Duckman, George Jiri Goldschmied, Henry
Graupner, Ann Meddin Hellman, Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord,
Adina Schwartz, Marilyn Shalks, and Suzanne Tarica. In addition, JewishGen
thanks 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.

Significant additions to the database include collections from
Brazil (Rio de Janeiro area), France, Germany, Italy (Milan and Torino),
Moldova, Romania (Timisoara), Slovakia (Neologicky Cintorin), Ukraine
(Chernivtsi) and the United States. Check
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm
for a complete listing of our inventory by location.

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.
