Cemeteries in Bohemia #austria-czech

Robert Stein <rsteinfam@...>
 

In a recent visit to three cemeteries in Bohemia: Rokycany, Radnice and Osek
(near Rokycany) I was unable to identify any tombstones of my family
(STEIN). However in doing subsequent research I notice that the
International Jewish Cemetery Project lists, among the information on each
cemetery site, the fact that a "survey" was completed. Also listed are the
names of the individuals who conducted the survey. My question is what do
these surveys contain, for example, map? and listing of the people buried?
And how are these surveys obtained?

Hi Robert -
The surveys are filed out by volunteers who have gone to the sites.
The content is what you see posted on the IAJGS cemetery site. When
there is more information that is also indicated.

The surveys are located halfway down this page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/instructions/

Please fill them out for the cemeteries you visited or email any
updates you have for the IAJGS pages to phrases1@...

We also need a few more volunteers to help keep the pages up-to-date,
so anyone who wants to adopt a country or two please contact me. I can
train anyone with word processor skills to do this (HTML skills
preferred but not totally necessary)
