Another Tombstone Reading Tip

When trying to read old tombstones at a cemetery, it is very useful to
bring a flashlight and a large paper bag. Pull the bag over the stone,
stick your head and the flashlight inside, and shine the light sideways
on the inscription; you may be able to read an inscription you could not
read before. This technique is used to study antique rock carvings and
should work equally well on old tombstones. Another way is to do what
blind people do--use your fingertips. Very often you can feel the
inscription you are not able to read.

Re: Beider's Dictionary online #general

Hello All:

My information on Ancestry.com and their searchable Beider's Dictionary seems to
have resulted in some frustration on the part of users.

I myself do not have a copy of the actual book, so I don't know what names should
be included. I tried three >from my own family, and found them all. I tried
some names that I thought should be there; some were and some were not.. In an
attempt to get near the end of the database I guessed the name ZATSMAN, and
followed up with "view search results" then "view the full context". At the
bottom of the page it indicated that the database contains a total of 48,743
records.

If someone with a copy of the actual dictionary will do something similar, he/she
can compare a full page and see if anything is missing.

The database is located at:

All I did out of curiosity was to start deleting >from the right

Subject: JewishGen's NEW Projects - A 2001 Odyssey
From: "Susan E. King" <susan.king@...>
Date: Mon, 4 Sep 2000 21:47:12 -0500
X-Message-Number: 1

Those flashes of lightening in the sky are not the only energy being
generated in Texas these days. JewishGen is firing on all cylinders
and then some! <grin> Plans for all the new additions to be launched
in 2001 reveal the potential for many successful connections and the
ability for JewishGenners to access information previously unavailable
all >from the comfort of their own homes.

To handle the explosion of programs, projects and databases, Michael
Tobias, V.P. of Programming and Development, and Warren Blatt, V.P.
of Technical Operations, are busy designing a totally new
infrastructure which will house the future generation of data on the
JewishGen site Please recognize that during this time devoted to
initial design and development, no new projects requiring databases or
programming will be introduced. However, there is quite a bit that we
all can be working on while the technical aspects are being designed
and implemented across the JewishGen site.

Those who were present in Salt Lake City were introduced to the
concept. It is a little more complex than we can impart in a
single message, however, if you take a look at the All Latvia
Database, <http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Latvia/> you will catch
a glimpse of what this new presentation will look like. Use the name
"Goldberg" for the search and review each of the returns and links.
<grin> There's really more to it.. and perhaps in the coming months,
as it develops, we will be able to share more of the elements. But,
if the feedback in Salt Lake City, is any indicator, it is really
awesome! So, in addition to the Online Worldwide Burial Registry
(OWBR)project which was announced in August
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/> there are two more
projects we want you to know about.

Yad Vashem and JewishGen

During the JewishGen presentation at the July conference in Salt Lake
City, an historic data sharing agreement was signed between these
two organizations. The official press release is available at

<http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen/pr/YadVashemAgreement.htm>

Yad Vashem will begin to share with us some of the the 10,000 lists
available in their archives. JewishGen's role will be in providing
the network of volunteers gathered >from the special interest and
research groups we host, as well as other interested groups, to
index and digitize the data contained in these lists. The resulting
databases will be accessible on both the Yad Vashem and JewishGen web
sites. Part of our planned technical redesign is the preparation of a
special site to house all this new material.

The catch is that this will not be possible without your assistance in
volunteering for data input teams. There is still planning to complete
before we are ready for the actual work to begin. But here is what we
are doing to set up the infrastructure to handle all the new data that
will be coming our way.

1) JewishGen will be appointing a technical coordinator to work with
SIGs and other research groups to set up teams and train them on the
necessary procedures;

2) We have already received the lists identified below >from Yad Vashem
and these will be distributed to various SIGs as soon as all the
procedures have been worked out. Our intent is to start with some of
the smaller lists so we can begin to build quality assurance into the
process to insure data integrity throughout all 10,000 lists.

The first set of lists include:

List of Jews >from Szombathely, Hungary, 3200 records
List of Jews >from Debrecen, Hungary, 3964 records
Transnistra, 2320 records
Moghilev, 1973 records
Norway and Denmark, 1300 records
Prague, 1360 records
Krosno, 2070 records

To avoid confusion, we have agreed that there will be a single point
of contact between us and Yad Vashem. All work will be channeled
through Joyce Field, V.P. for Research and a technical coordinator.
Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias will head up our technical team.
Joyce, working with her counterpart at Yad Vashem will coordinate
the selection of files, and their distribution to the participating
SIGs. Later in the project the local JGSs will be asked to assist
with the project.

To cover costs of photocopying and postage, expected to be significant
due to the number of lists involved, a fundraising program has been
established and is listed at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/Research.html>

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM)

JewishGen has had a cooperative relationship with the USHMM since its
announcement at the 1999 New York conference. Recently JewishGen and
USHMM agreed to use the same single point of contact procedure as
outlined above for the Yad Vashem Project. All public and press
announcements regarding both projects will emanate >from the
Research Division.

The planning and organizational design are just about finalized. Now
comes the critical piece....the marshalling of forces....and that's
where you all come in. You will be just as much an important part of
this effort as the planners nd the technical staff. Make no mistake,
it's you folks out there who volunteer who actually bring these
projects to fruition. You are the volunteer army that will make it
happen.

When your SIG or Research Group announces a particular data entry
need, don't think twice, just agree to help. The more volunteers,
the less work for all, and the sooner all JewishGenners will have
an opportunity to view information previously not as easily available.

You will all be able to see it on your own computers! And more
importantly, you'll each know that you've had a hand in putting it
there.

Finally, as Glen Strauss pointed out in his recent message, it's all
the people who use JewishGen who also must come forth and support the
Operations budget. Yes...we need you to help in getting the
information together and that's why we say you've "had a hand in
putting it there". But, once it's there, we need your help in keeping
it there. The cost to maintain internet connectivity, co-location of
our servers, monthly phone bills, and technical support is growing.

The sophistication of our hardware and software needs is very
different than just a year ago. We need your help with this
too. If the truth be told, the only thing about the internet that is
free is the opportunity we provide for you to access all this
information without charging a membership or monthly fee. Will you
help up keep it that way? It's a two pronged function ...

to you
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/Research.html>

To help JewishGen keep it online and freely accessible
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/Operations.html>

We look forward to shared excitement as we embark together on what
could be termed our own 2001 Odyssey. There is no doubt
there's bit of work to do, and we have only just begun. We hope all of
you will begin to make this journey with us... sharing and committing
both your time and financial support to this outstanding institution
we know as - JewishGen.
