To assist donors who are interested in submitting data and/or photos to the JOWBR database, JewishGen has developed a series of “How To” screencasts (short online videos).  When you watch these screencasts, you will be able to watch and hear an explanation of how to make a complete and successful JOWBR submission.

The screencasts cover all the questions we typically receive, from “How do I know if my cemetery is online?” to “What will my data look like when I'm done?”  The majority of the screencasts describe exactly how to properly complete the standard JOWBR Excel template, and make specific entries in the Cemetery Info tab and the Burial Template.

Each screencast addresses a specific topic or type of entry.  You can watch the entire series, or just the ones you have questions.  Like all online videos, you can pause or replay them as desired.  (An alternative to watching the screencasts is the webpage “Submitting Data to JOWBR”).

In the box at the right is a clickable list of the available screencasts (and their length, in minutes and seconds).

We hope this submission aide will help you see that submitting records to JOWBR is not at all difficult.  The ability to share data with researchers and family members around the world is invaluable and we hope that you'll consider making a submission of your own.

If you have any questions, please contact Nolan Altman.
