Honoring #general

In honor of the work of all Jewish genealogists and especially of Mark Halpern,
recent recipient of the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award of the International
Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, I am making my contribution today. I
post this on the Digest not only to encourage others to consider doing similarly
but to show respect for the continuing dedication of so many who have made such a
difference in all our lives through Jewish genealogy work. Like many of you, I
started trying to find a teeny ancestral (Galician) village, even if only on the
map, almost 25 years ago. I found Jewishgen and JRI Poland and the changes in
research made by these two groups over the years has been phenomenal. How can we
all ever thank them adequately?
