Please remember that genealogy is not a spectator
sport. In order to expland our knowledge of our
ancestral towns we need contributions of
translated material or money to support hiring
professional translators. So consider
volunteering to translate material >from your
ancestral shtetl's yizkor book or donating money
to the fundraising projects listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=3D=23.
Making a contribution to JewishGen to support the
infrastrucure of the Yizkor Book Project is vital
for the continued growth and development of this
project.

Contact me privately if you can translate from
Hebrew and/or Yiddish and are willing to submit
translations to the project.
