books, four new entries, and 14 updates. We are pleased to announce
that Yad Vashem is now submitting to JewishGen translations of
necrologies of yizkor books which the Yizkor Book Project does not
have online. These translations are listed on the translations index
page at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html and wll
also be added to the Necrology Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/, which is updated
quarterly.

We also want to call to your attention the previously unpublished
manuscrpit by Robin O'Neil, "Schindler: Stepping Stone to Life," at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/schindler/schindler.html. The
remaining chapters will be online in September.

Finally, Yad Vashem has just published an additional volume of the
Pinkas HaKehillot Germany, volume IV in two parts. The table of
