Genealogical data can be computerised using a myriad programmes. The original programme used to collate the data available here is DoroTree, chosen because it is specifically designed to meet the requirements of Jewish genealogy - especially the possibility to place Latin and Hebrew characters side-by-side; the use of the Hebrew calendar with direct transfer from Gregorian to Hebrew dates; and the fact that it relates to Bar Mitzvahs rather than Christenings and more. This information was then transfered to an interactive geneological viewer provided by PhpGedView.
Privacy and Getting a Password
Family trees, by their very nature, contain vital data. Where this information concerns the deceased there should be no reason to obstruct public access, but data relating to the living can be abused and misused. Hence detailed information can only be accessed with a password. This can be obtained, at my discretion, by applying for a user name on the home page of the family tree or by emailing me.
Why is Some of the Information Wrong and How Can it Be Corrected?
The raw data for the family tree has been collated from many sources and not all is fully verifiable. Inevitably, the further I retreat from my immediate family, the ability to discover accurate facts and figures becomes more complex. So first of all I apologise if I spelt your name wrong or made you ten years older than you really are, but the next move is up to you. All you have to do is get a password and correct the information online yourself. If this is not convenient please DO contact me and I will correct all errors forthwith.
