Visit JewishGen's New Website #france

Nancy Siegel
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce our newly designed website at
www.JewishGen.org. We commissioned the creation of a new landing page
to serve as a launching point for the main components of the website.
The site is built on a modern, secure platform, which is beneficial
for a number of reasons, including:

*It has a more intuitive and user-friendly design,
*It is mobile-responsive, and
*It has a more familiar platform, which will make it easier for us to
find qualified consultants, contractors and volunteers to help us in
the future.

This is not the final plan. It's a stop-gap redesign that addresses
some of the shortcomings of our website by creating a visually
appealing, mobile-friendly, and easy to navigate homepage that
researchers can utilize to find key components on the JewishGen site.
While we attracted approximately one million unique visitors to the
JewishGen site last year, only a small portion of this group actually
registered or became regular users. We anticipate that an enhanced
website will improve these results.

Specifically, we hope the new landing page will help guide researchers to:

*Search the online collection
*Locate ancestral communities
*Explore life in their ancestral communities
*Join our discussion groups
*Volunteer, and
*Donate.

Over the next two months, we will begin crafting a proper technology
strategy, which will include our website and databases. In the
meantime, however, this new landing page will immediately help
researchers, while also demonstrating JewishGen's strategic focus.

Thank you to everyone on our staff and volunteer leadership team for
their suggestions and contributions to making this happen. Special
thanks to Scott Seidenstock, Gary Sandler, and Warren Blatt.

Please enjoy the site and visit www.JewishGen.org now. Feedback and
suggestions will be most welcome!

Anyone going to Mt Lebanon Cemetery in Glendale? #general

Carol Karp
 

I would appreciate a photo of a Grave so that I could read the Hebrew
name of the parent.
The stone is for Louis Kreiss who died on 9/10/1981
He is buried in in PETROF Lodge. P-1-2-7/8-12A Rear 1

This is a cousin of mine and getting the Hebrew name of his father
would really open up the brick wall.

Buried nearby are his son Arthur Kreiss and daughter in law Gussie Kreiss
p1-4-9
P1-5-9
If it's not too much trouble I would appreciate all three. If not then
Louis Kreiss would be fine

Re: Visit JewishGen’s New Website!

juliana.berland@...
 

Hello all. A few comments about the new site as it is still being tested & developed:

On the page https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Who.html, the first sentence has a typo
"JewishGen serves as-as the global home..." (I didn't check elsewhere, this was just a chance sighting.)

The footer on the new design (for pages such as https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/) needs work -- it shows too many copyright dates, lists the Wordpress back-end information in 2 different places, & Richard Baum's name is not capitalized.

regards,
Juliana Berland
