JOWBR Grows to Over 2 Million Records #hungary

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2014 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 124,000 new records and 25,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 190 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 2.27 million records >from almost 4,400 cemeteries /
cemetery sections representing 85 countries!

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

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to find
and gain permission to add many of the German towns in addition to records
from under-represented countries. 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 Cleveland,
Ohio and surrounding areas, Leeds, England, various German towns, Bialystok,
Poland, Chernigov, Ukraine, Shanghai, China, and an annual update >from the
US Veterans Administration. 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.

Memorial Plaque Project Doubles to More Than 60,000 Records. Please help us continue to grow! #hungary

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2014 pre-Conference Update for the
Memorial Plaque Project (MPP) database. The MPP database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPP database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This year, we added more than 30,000 records >from the US, Israel and Canada.
These records come >from 35 different synagogues and other institutions. A
big thank you to the work being done by the JGS of Greater Boston, The
Jewish Historical Society of South Carolina, the JGS of Montreal, and a
number of synagogues and individual donors.

We believe that the MPP 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.

For a complete listing of the institutions currently in the database, please

Re: Satu Mare Cemetery list #hungary

p/s/h indicates the numbering for location of the grave. i believe
it stands for parcella/sor/hely (section/row/grave) or similar. (i'm
sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong.)

ozvegy, abbreviated ozv., means widow. (note that where it might say
"ozv.Grun (Weisz) Sara Samune", it means that the woman was the widow
of Samu Grun, born Sara Weisz, if maiden name is included. often
women were referred to by their husband's name, with the addition of
the suffix -ne, meaning "woman of", much the same as the english "Mrs
John Smith". it's important to realize that Samune is not a feminine
given name.) i'm not sure if there's a jewishgen infofile that
touches on hungarian names, but if there isn't, there should be.

What does Osv. mean before some names?

p/s/h on the Szatmar cemetery list #hungary

Here was Andreas Gluck's response to my question. He was the only one who responded who knew, so I thought this might help others.

p/s/h = parcel / row / place

Payment to Archive #poland

Jerry Small
 

Hello all,

Maybe some of you can give me a hint about making payment to the Polish
archive. I have 2 case numbers that appear promising but according to
emails >from the archive in Torun, they accept Polish currency. They ask
initially for 30 PLN to begin and may ask for more later. This is less
than $15 and most banks will charge over twice that to do the transfer.
I have looked at Western Union and they may be a choice but I wonder if
any of you have a better idea.

Thanks for any suggestion.

Zelman Fryzerman #lodz #poland

Elizabeth Erlich
 

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to find a picture of my uncle Zelman Fryzerman. He was born
on July 19, 1925 in Lodz and lived on Aleja 1-go Maja Street no. 59
until his transfer to the Lodz Ghetto. In 1944 he, his parents and
sister Rachela (Ruchla) were transported to Auschwitz. Zelman was then
taken to Schotterwerk and died of disease and starvation in Dornhau in
March 1945 at the age of 19. In August 1984, my parents and I attended
a "World Gathering of Lodzer Holocaust Survivors" in New York. My
mother (Zelman's sister) met a couple of Zelman's friends, but did not
ask for contact information. I'm hoping that someone remembers him and
may have his picture.

If you have any information about Zelman, please contact me privately.

Thank you very much.
