JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) and the Importance of Jewish Burial Records (sponsored by the Center for Jewish History)

New York, New York

Center for Jewish History
15 West 16th Street, New York, NY 10011

Nolan Altman (Vice President for Data Acquisition and Coordinator of the JOWBR project at JewishGen)

Jewish headstone inscriptions and burial records can provide crucial information to genealogists. Hebrew name inscriptions, based on patronymics, can link together two generations of Hebrew names unlike any other source document. This can be especially helpful when trying to link first generation American ancestors to their European families. Through photographic examples and case studies, this lecture will illustrate how the information and symbols found on stones can help to create your family tree.

Jewish Populations in Europe, 1750 ? 1950: Maps for Your Research (sponsored by the Center for Jewish History)

New York, New York

Center for Jewish History
15 West 16th Street, New York, NY 10011

Sandy Crystall is a wetland scientist and amateur genealogist.

With the frequently changing borders of European countries in the 18th ? 20th centuries, it can be a challenge to understand the locations of Jewish communities within those countries. On behalf of the International Institute for Jewish Genealogy, Sandy Crystall developed a series of digital maps that show the populations of as many as 700 Jewish communities. This presentation will provide information about the creation of these digital maps and how they can be used to assist in genealogical research.
