We are calling for volunteers to photograph and record Jewish headstones.

Jewishgen is the largest jewish Genealogical database on the internet!
These projects provide the details and photographs to be included in the JOWBR database. The JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) is a database of more than three million names and other identifying information from cemeteries and burial records worldwide on the Jewishgen website. This will enable genealogical researchers (international or local) to trace members of their families, who are buried in Australia.
