AJGS & AJGS (Vic), in Association with the Lamm Jewish Library of Australia, presents Nolan Altman, JewishGen’s Director of Data Acquisition.
Patronymic Naming and Cemetery Research – Their Importance in Jewish Genealogy
Nolan Altman was bitten by the genealogy bug when he was inspired to write his family history in 1996 in memory of his mother. After making use of the valuable information on JewishGen, he volunteered to do data entry on various projects. In time, he was asked to become the Coordinator for JewishGen’s Holocaust Database and subsequently the Coordinator for the JOWBR (JewishGen’s Online Worldwide Burial Registry) project.
Nolan currently holds the position of JewishGen’s Director for Data Acquisition and focuses on growing the JOWBR, Holocaust and Memorial Plaques databases.
