Shalom,

It seems fair to warn you that this report is rather long, 93 projects long
in fact, so that if you are in the middle of something you might want to
come back to this later <g>

Yes, it is quite clear that a lot went on in October in the Yizkor Book
Project and, for instance, I was excited to see that for several projects,
we are getting closer and closer to seeing the translation of whole books
online. Clearly, such a feat doesn't come about overnight and without a
dedicated team effort which usually takes months and even years but, believe
me, it is definitely worth the effort providing the researchers of today and
tomorrow, a wealth of information on our communities which were destroyed in
the Holocaust. To give you an idea of how of the number of communities
involved, at this stage in time, the Yizkor Book Project now contains
information on around 1500 communities and 650 books and we continue to
press on to cover communities, yet to be reached.

I must point out that our html team is integrally behind this month's
extraordinary achievement and so, my heartfelt thanks go out to Osnat
Ramaty, Max Heffler and Jason Hallgarten for their continued efforts, never
saying no and for maintaining such high standards of work.

Please note that the translations that are online can be reached by clicking
on blue links in the indexes and tables of contents, so that if you find
that the article you're looking for has no link, it means that it hasn't
been translated yet. If this is the case, I suggest you contact the
coordinator of the particular book you're interested in or if there is no
coordinator, please contact me and I'll see what can be done to facilitate
the translation.

Note that a very positive way of helping to see translations placed online
is by supporting one of the many Translation Funds which have been set up to
bring about the professional translation of the Yizkor Books. If you feel
able to support this effort, please go to the Yizkor Book JewishGen-erosity
page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to learn about the Translation Funds currently underway.

And further about translations; in recent times, I have received messages
from Hebrew speakers who would like to read the Yizkor Books but are unable
to read Yiddish sections and are not fluent enough in English to read our
online translations. For this reason, we have begun to add in Hebrew
translations - for instance, for Staszow, Poland and I would be pleased to
hear >from volunteers who are able to translate >from Yiddish to Hebrew, or
from the English into Hebrew to help make progress on this initiative for
other Yizkor books.
