We *can't* lose JewishGen #general
Susan King's poignant picture of the challenges facing JewishGen
due to a severe budget deficit sent a chill throughout the audience
attending her lecture at the Toronto IAJGS Conference.
You are one of 43,000 users reading my message thru JewishGen's
Discussion Group. There are only 1,843 donors to JewishGen!
JewishGen aids researchers through the use of 7.1 million records!
There is an $84,000 budget deficit.
Quoting Susan, " Challenges spell changes", ....."JewishGen is
facing a business challenge".......... "the resolve: challenge
individually and collectively".
It is impossible to imagine the Internet without JewishGen!
How may one help?
In addition - volunteers are needed in various capacities - project
managers, graphic experts, et al.
Resolve to keep JewishGen an active entity on the Internet!
