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.

JOWBR Grows to Over 2 Million Records #france

bounce-2807367-772957@...
 

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.

I've posted a marriage record in English (NY) for which I have two
questions. It is on
ViewMate at the following address ...


http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=34273

1. The wedding was on May 17, 1891. Why is the date listed as 10-17-42?
2. Can you decipher the given name of the first witness? (The bride,
Fannie Roth, is >from Vienna or nearby)

Thanks,

Our org received a request >from a gentleman in Chicago for a translation of
a 2-page postal card >from 1911, which has been in his family's possession
for many years, received by his father after coming to Chicago >from Poland,
prior to his parents' marriage, but they don't know what it says. The
writing is very small, so it would be a lengthy translation. If someone
would be willing to work on this, I'm sure his family would be very
appreciative.

I am posting links to ViewMate for the two pages plus the address block.

My g grandfather, Moshe Naftoli Futtterman, was a builder in Berditchev

I apologize if this not a question for JewishGen.

Have you tried online sources you have checked, such as legacy.com,
obituaries.com, deadfred, findagrave, etc.? I found my long-lost
aunt's grave this way. I had been concerned because two years after
she moved, we lost communication with her. I was able to work back to
the family that assisted her in her latter years, make contact and get
some new information. It turns out she is buried near my uncle and
mother with her last husband, in the very same cemetery!
