<x-flowed>Dear Friends:

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 13 volunteers
stands at over 7,200. We are perhaps 20% of the way toward our goal.

Here is a summary of our progress on the alphabetized portion of the
register for the period 1906 to 1948. For surnames starting with
A - 10% complete
D - complete
E - complete
F - 25% complete
G - complete
H - complete
J, Y, and I - complete
N - 60% complete
O - complete
Sp (only surnames starting with "Sp") - complete
St ( " ) - complete

In addition to the above, many further entries have been transcribed
from the Parcel listings which are arranged by parcel and plot
number, not alphabetically. These parcel listings are the only
source of information for pre-1906 burials.

The Parcel listings often include the name, address, and sometimes
the relationship of a member of the family of the deceased. This is
a real bonus of information.

I'm very impressed with the dedicated team of volunteers who are
working so hard and carefully to create an accurate and complete
database from these handwritten, often hard-to-read burial registers.
I would like to acknowledge them here:
