Using Cemetery and Burial Records in the JRI-Poland Database

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

Members only Free

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.
