Baruch Dayan HaEmet - Ruth Gamper Silver #belarus
It is with much sadness that we report that Ruth Gamper Silver passed away
Monday, June 25, 2018. Robinn Magid posted the following message on
Jewishgen and JRI-Poland earlier today.
I am saddened to report the recent and sudden passing of Ruth Gamper Silver,
a longtime volunteer in the Jewish Genealogy world and a good friend to many
of us. Ruth volunteered in the Belarus SIG as a data acquisition coordinator
and with Paul Zoglin and David Feldman, worked hard to create a cooperative
relationship with other SIGs. Ruth was a dedicated and active volunteer for
JRI-Poland.org working with me in the Lublin region for many years. Her
cheerful attitude, willingness to help, and ability to tell a story will be
sorely missed. Ruth loved her family and her cats very much. May her memory
be for a blessing.
For the past 7 years, both Paul and I have worked closely with Ruth who
coordinated all of our projects. Through her tireless work she completely
reorganized the project workflow for the Belarus SIG and kept all of our
projects running smoothly. Ruth lived in Geneva Switzerland when she joined
the Belarus SIG and more recently moved to Montreal.
Here is a link to her obituary:
We thank Ruth for all her hard-work, dedication and friendship. You will be
