<x-flowed>Here is the next in a series of periodic updates on the project to
computerize the Czernowitz Jewish cemetery burial registers.

The number of names entered by a dedicated team of 12 volunteers
stands at 3,148. We have a long way to go, but we've made a great

So far, we've worked on an alphabetized portion of the register for
the period 1906 to 1948.
For surnames starting with letter:

G - nearly complete
H - nearly complete
N - about half complete
J, Y, and I - complete
O - half complete

Names starting with Sp and St have all been sent out to the volunteer
team. We are also starting on names beginning with letter D.

Letter E will follow letter D, and then we will begin working on the
Parcel/plot listings. These are more or less in order of Parcel
number, and include listings for burials from the mid 1800s through
the 1930s. Occasionally, one finds the name and address of a contact
person on these parcel/plot pages, but this information seems to be
pretty hard to read.

So - great progress is being made, but we have a long, long way to go!

Best regards,
