JOWBR Breaks Through the 2 Million Record Mark!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2013 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 75,000 new records and 21,000 new photos.
The database is adding 220 new cemeteries along with updates or additions to
an additional 330 cemeteries. This update brings JOWBR's holdings to 2.03
million records >from almost 4,050 cemeteries / cemetery sections
representing 81 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's 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 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.

Of particular note in this update are the following additions:

-Germany. We are adding close to 140 new German cemeteries (20,000 records).
Significant contributions came from:

future updates.

South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica Descendents of Joseph Samuels #southafrica

Arlene Beare
 

I am looking for the descendants of Joseph Samuels. In the 1891 England
census he gives his place of origin as Iochlin. This may be Zyechlin
incorrectly written down by the clerk. He lived in East End of London
married a Dora Dembinski and had 11 children named
Rose,Ada,Susan,Sarah,Israel,Annie,Eva,Louis,Abraham,Phillip and Rebecca.

His brother Benjamin, who moved to S. Africa, gives his place of origin in 1911
as Krakow so I do not know where they originated as they may have been born in
one place and then moved somewhere else.
If anyone recognises any of these names I would really appreciate hearing
from you.

The cemetery does not list any Milners.

I don't think "Mil(l)ner" is anything but old English for "Miller",

All the other Germanic forms do not have the "i" but an o, ö, ü, y.

<http://www.oed.com/view/Entry/118513>

So probably this was not a Yiddish form either.

Could it be that the name was different in the old country?

1. Go to italiangen (italiangen.org) and research; get the certificate
#, year etc.
2. Go to SteveMorse.org and get the microfilm #
(http://www.stevemorse.org/vital/filmnotes.html)
3. Complete the FHL/Mormon form online at
https://lds.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_9tdS7lqbTCW30kR

My experience is 2-3 week turnaround.

of course your other, slower, costly choices are to order and view the
microfilm, go to the NYC archives, or order directly >from the NYC

Also note, although the marrige certificates can be ordered online,
the marriage licenses cannot; they must be viewed on-site at the NYC
