JewishGen is proud to announce its latest update to the JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR
database can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/
If you're a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast
page at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a
look at the first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 116,600 new records and 29,800 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 430 cemeteries. This
update brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.45 million records >from close to
8,000 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 128 countries!

Please note, this update only includes submissions that were made
through last November 30th. Anything that was submitted after that will
be in the June pre-Conference update. If you have new material to submit,
please do so by May 31st to be included in the next update.

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.

Significant additions to JOWBR by country include:

. Argentina - approximately 11,300 records >from new and existing
cemeteries.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been finding and
gaining permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennet, Lyn Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellmann,
Maurice Kessler, Hans Nord, Marilyn Shalks, Deborah Ross, Molly Mark
Strauss, and Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to 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.

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.

Dear JewishGen Community.

We are pleased to present the JewishGen Passover Companion 2019, which
contains inspirational vignettes about how Passover was observed in
various communities, along with first-hand accounts about the great
effort and personal risk (Mesirat Nefesh) Jews took to observe
Passover during the Holocaust.

As you gather around the Seder table, and tell the story of the
Exodus, we hope that this companion will have helped inspire you to
connect with previous generations, while considering your role in
preserving the history and legacy of not just your family, but the
entirety of the Jewish people.

Searching: BRANZBURG from Vitebsk #belarus

aryenudelman@...
 

Hi
My wife's grandmother, Galia BRANZBURG (Gilula) is looking for her
maternal side relatives, she did mtDNA test of FTDNA

She was born in Vitebsk Belarus ~1936 (she is alive yet the date is
inaccurate).

I found her father's side his name was Tsodik BRANZBURG he had a lot of
something made him leave to Birubijan during the 30's.

Galia with her Mother Dvoira and Grandmother Hanna (Channa) evacuated
toward Astrakhan before the WWII (~1941)

Hanna and Dvoira died in some hospital somewhere in the Astrakhan area,
they died >from coldness and starving.

Galia was only ~5 years old, during the being at Astrakhan Galia's
mother & grandmother met Fruma, after their death , more accurate after the WWII
at 1946 Fruma took Galiya to her (Fruma) aunt Fiega Resnik in belts Moldova,
during the travel Fruma lost all Galia's documents so Galia only
remembers the names that were mentioned, Galia lived there with adoptive parent.
Fiega Resnik since 7 till she married to Itzhak Gilula when she was 25.

Fiega Resnik had few kids of her own that were envy to Galia thus Galia
worked very hard at Fiega house jobs.

She would be very happy if she could somehow find more information>about
her mother/Grandmother Channa or even other details about her maternal
side.

Thanks for any assistance

Hi
My wife's grandmother, Galia BRANZBURG (Gilula) is looking for her
maternal side relatives, she did mtDNA test of FTDNA

She was born in Vitebsk Belarus ~1936 (she is alive yet the date is
inaccurate).

I found her father's side his name was Tsodik BRANZBURG he had a lot of
something made him leave to Birubijan during the 30's.

Galia with her Mother Dvoira and Grandmother Hanna (Channa) evacuated
toward Astrakhan before the WWII (~1941)

Hanna and Dvoira died in some hospital somewhere in the Astrakhan area,
they died >from coldness and starving.

Galia was only ~5 years old, during the being at Astrakhan Galia's
mother & grandmother met Fruma, after their death , more accurate after the WWII
at 1946 Fruma took Galiya to her (Fruma) aunt Fiega Resnik in belts Moldova,
during the travel Fruma lost all Galia's documents so Galia only
remembers the names that were mentioned, Galia lived there with adoptive parent.
Fiega Resnik since 7 till she married to Itzhak Gilula when she was 25.

Fiega Resnik had few kids of her own that were envy to Galia thus Galia
worked very hard at Fiega house jobs.

She would be very happy if she could somehow find more information>about
her mother/Grandmother Channa or even other details about her maternal
side.

Thanks for any assistance

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.
