Using Cemetery and Burial Records in the JRI-Poland Database

4 June 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT


Cemeteries form an important link to our Jewish ancestors. Whether or not the tombstones (matzevot) still exist undisturbed, Burial Records and Cemetery Lists can be helpful in preparing for a visit to a Jewish Cemetery in Poland or improving  your family history information. Join us for a presentation about the diverse Cemetery lists that can be found in the JRI-Poland database that will include helpful hints on how to use the JRI-Poland database and the information in it from our partner organization: the Foundation for the Documentation of Jewish Cemeteries in Poland. Specific examples will include lists from Wroclaw (Breslau), Bytom, and Warszawa (Warsaw), and the JRI-Poland database includes much more!

Hadassah Lipsius is the vice president of JRI-Poland.org and a recipient of the IAJGS Lifetime Achievement award. Her work for JRI-Poland includes serving as the Warszawa Area Coordinator. She often speaks on behalf of JRI-Poland and conducts workshops on how to successfully use the JRI-Poland website.
