JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Yad Vashem Database- Update and Services #general

Zvi Bernhardt
 

I would like to avail myself of the opportunity to tell you and your readers what
has happened here in the three weeks since the launch, and what they can expect
from Yad Vashem.
First of all I would like to thank all of you for the overwhelmingly positive
responses that we have received >from the more than 2.75 million visitors to the
site.

For those of you who sent us comments or corrections through the site: We are
currently working our way through the backlog of approximately 12,000 such
queries. We appreciate your patience. I am providing details and suggestions
regarding some of the most common categories of responses.

For those of you who have received responses which seem unsatisfactory, feel free
to contact us again. We are trying hard to find a balance between the efficiency
of standard answers, and the need to examine each case individually. Many of our
policies are still being clarified and modified based on actual responses, and we
can only do this through your feedback. Also, as our staff becomes more
experienced we hope that fewer errors in judgment will occur.

If you have not managed to access the site we suggest trying again. Many of the
initial technical problems have been solved. We suggest trying again. Appendix 1
includes a few suggestions for those still experiencing technical difficulties.

Appendix 2 includes a few guidelines regarding corrections. These are designed to
help you in your submissions, and in your evaluation of our responses.

After corrections, the most frequently asked questions are about locating
submitters. Unfortunately we rarely have information beyond what can be found on
the Pages of Testimony. Appendix 3 includes guidelines which you may find
helpful.

The other type of comment which we are pleased to receive, is that an individual
who appears in the database survived. See Appendix 4 for various possibilities.

If you discover overlapping records pertaining to the same individual such as two
different Pages of Testimony, or the person's name in a list and on a Page of
Testimony, we will make a note of it so that we can link the records at some point
in the future.

When dealing with Pages of Testimony this is rare, but in the case of material
derived >from archival lists, this is to be expected. While all the archival lists
in the database include mostly people who perished, in some cases they include
people we know survived, and in this case the fact that they survived is noted in
the database. In cases of individuals >from lists where we do not know their fate
(even though we know that statistically, most of those in the list perished), the
people in the list are not marked as people who were murdered in the Holocaust .
(See, for instance, the records >from the census of the Lodz ghetto.) Not all
individuals who were deported-->from Drancy, for example--were subsequently
murdered. If someone is not marked as a survivor and you know that they in fact
survived, we want to know about it these cases, so we can, in fact, note this in
the database. We can note that the individual is a survivor, but will ask for
documentation, such as a copy of an identity card or passport, to verify it.

The Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names is a work in progress, and the
product of cooperation between the public and Yad Vashem. We continue to welcome
your corrections, comments, photographs, and new Pages of Testimony, even if there
may be a delay in our replies.

With best wishes for a Happy Hanukah,

Nadia Kahan
Director of Reference and Information Services
Yad Vashem, Jerusalem

Appendix 1 - Technical Suggestions

At times, the database has been hard to access because it was overloaded. This is
no longer happening. If you have tried getting into the database a few times at
different hours and failed, we suggest you check the following points:

-Do you have a version of Explorer above 5.5?

-If you have a firewall, at times turning it off will allow access to the
database.

-If you have protection against pop-up ads, canceling this protection will allow
access to the database.

-It is not always possible to access the database with Apple computers


Appendix 2 - Corrections

Yes we want them!

Submit corrections through the "correct our deciphering form" >from the individual
Page of Testimony, on the "more details" page". It saves time and confusion in
identifying the Page in question.

If the Page of Testimony is correct, and we agree that the information was keyed
in improperly, we will correct it. If we disagree, we will tell you that we
disagree.

Note that it will be several months before these corrections appear in the online
database, which is only updated periodically.

If the mistake is on the Page of Testimony and not in our transcription, we cannot
alter the Page of Testimony which is in and of itself a piece of archival
documentation. We suggest submitting a new Page of Testimony.

In the case of a minor mistake on a Page of Testimony, which you yourself
submitted, we will alter it as per your specific instructions.


Appendix 3 - Finding Submitters

Yad Vashem's goal and mandate in collecting Pages of Testimony and developing the
Central Database was to commemorate the victims of the Shoah. Reconnecting family
members is a secondary function. Unfortunately, we rarely have information on
whether the submitter of a Page of Testimony is still alive, nor on how to contact
them today.

To locate a person's current address in Israel:

1. Look for them in the online Israel phone book http://www.144.bezek.com/. The
site is in Hebrew. Stephen Morse at http://stevemorse.org/hebrew/bezeq.html has
created a utility which allows non-Hebrew speakers to use the Bezeq site.

2. Call or write the Israeli Ministry of Interior. oc_info@....
972-2-6294666. Generally, the information they can give is the person's current
address, or whether the person is deceased. The more you know about the person,
the more likely they are to be able to supply you with information. This service
is limited to one request per day.

3. Use the various services on the JewishGen website www.jewishgen.org. Note that
there are many different services on this website, some of which require
registration.

4. Use the service being developed by the Israel Genealogical Society [IGS]. By
sending full information to: "Rose Feldman" rosef@... who will post it
to www.isragen.org.il. In "Projects" on the side bar, there is a category called
"Searching for Submitters of Pages of Testimony in Israel".

5. If you know Hebrew, send a letter to the family roots (Shorashim Mishpachtiyim)
forum on the Tapuz website
http://www.tapuz.co.il/tapuzforum/main/anashim.asp?forum=325&pass=1

For survivors outside of Israel there are local and online phone books, as well as
various Internet services such as Yahoo's People Search http://people.yahoo.com.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum maintains a registry of Holocaust
survivors. http://www.ushmm.org/remembrance/registry, which includes survivors
primarily, but not exclusively, >from North America.

The Yad Vashem Archives and Library include extensive offline, information about
survivors, but few of the records go beyond the year 1954. As such, the
submitter's information on the Pages of Testimony, is usually more recent than
what we are likely to find for you at Yad Vashem. However, you are welcome to
contact us. There is a fee for the research and it may take us up to two months
to respond. You are also welcome to come to the reading room, where our staff can
help you to research the matter yourself.

We hope that you will find this information helpful, and that you will succeed in
contacting your family members.

Appendix 4 Individuals who survived who appear in the database.

When dealing with Pages of Testimony this is rare. Verify that the details, such
as parents' names, spouse's name, and approximate dates of birth match before
contacting us.

In the case of material derived >from archival lists this is to be expected.

All the archival lists in the database include mostly individuals who perished,
but in some cases they include people we know survived, and in this case the fact
that they survived is noted in the database.

Finding submitters of PoT in Israel #belarus

Charna&Bob Duchanov
 

In response to Nadia Kahn's (of Yad Vashem) message that was posted
recently, re her suggestion in Appendix 3 to contact the Israel Ministry of
the Interior when looking for submitters of PoT-there is a form (in Hebrew)
available at main branches of the post office specifically for this purpose.
I used this form (which I discovered accidentally when waiting in line at
the post office) to locate a distant cousin whose address was no longer
valid. I received a response within one week. I only knew his name, father's
name and town and they sent me his current address. It's definitely worth a
try. Good luck to all!

the Interior when looking for submitters of PoT-there is a form (in Hebrew)
available at main branches of the post office specifically for this purpose.
I used this form (which I discovered accidentally when waiting in line at
the post office) to locate a distant cousin whose address was no longer
valid. I received a response within one week. I only knew his name, father's
name and town and they sent me his current address. It's definitely worth a
try. Good luck to all!
