   Australian Jewish Genealogical Society (Vic)

in association with the Lamm Jewish Library of Australia.   

SUNDAY 18 NOVEMBER  

MITZVAH DAY

Where.....

SPRINGVALE BOTANICAL CEMETERY

(SPRINGVALE NECROPOLIS)

 

Message to all who are interested, we need you!

 

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

Following the successful project last year where we and our wonderful Volunteers photographed graves at Fawkner Cemetery, the Australian Jewish Genealogy Society (Vic) is undertaking to photograph all Jewish headstones in the Springvale Botanical Cemetery. (Springvale Necropolis)

 

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.  This will enable genealogical researchers (international or local) to trace members of their families, who are buried in Australia.

 

Further instructions will be given closer to the date.

Please register your intention to participate so that we can do

the preparation for worksheets etc
