This posting is to publicly acknowledge the fantastic work Jewishgen is
doing for all of us. Its newsgroup, mailing lists and databases have been
priceless tools to help me in my family research.
The experience of a free-meal on the Internet is becoming more and more
uncommon. I foresee that public databases will quickly shift towards either
publicity-sponsored sites (with annoying popup windows and intrusive
banners) or fee-based sites (like ancestry.com). However, I would still
like to see Jewishgen and its high-quality standards as it is today.
This morning I sent my first monetary contribution to Jewishgen, greatly
thanks to the *awareness campaign* following the convention in Toronto. I
hope to do the same next year.
I would like to encourage all of us to do the same, according to your
A Happy New Year to all of you!
