Holocaust Memorial Project
loving memory of the Holocaust victims in the
areas of pre-Trianon Hungary, members of H-SIG are transcribing names
listed on Holocaust memorials in Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and any
other H-SIG areas. If you plan to travel to these areas or if you
have pictures of memorials and want to transcribe the names for this
project, please contact Larry Kohn to let her know which memorial(s) you are interested
in transcribing. We are including images of the names in the database
where they are available, so pictures of each memorial as a whole and
pictures of each panel or stone would be appreciated. Because
these memorials are located in public places, JewishGen only needs
permission from transcribers.
H-SIG has developed templates for the transcription of vital
records. Follow JewishGen rules for transcribing data, which are
located at: Transcription
Rules . In particular, be aware of the following guidelines
for entering data:
- All surnames must be entered in CAPITAL LETTERS,
for example WEINBERGER.
- Dates should be entered in text fields, not date
fields as follows: DD-MMM-YYYY, for example:
- Enter the town name, county (region) and country as they were
during World War II, but enter the town, county and country where the
memorial is located using the modern names.
- Enter titles, occupations, dates, other names or other
information in the Comment field. If you enter a surname in the
Comment field, be sure to also enter the surname in CAPITAL LETTERS in
the Other Names field.
- If you have any other questions about using the
templates, please contact Larry Kohn .
