Dear fellow researchers:
The response to our post about future cooperation between the Polish State
Archives and Jewish Records Indexing - Poland has been overwhelming.
While we anticipated an air of excitement over this update, we could hardly
have expected what JRI-Poland Treasurer Sheila Salo has called the
"blizzard" of donations and, I should add, the many private congratulatory
Thanks to the generosity by JRI-Poland researchers, it will be possible for
us to make an early start on the indexing of records for a number of towns
in Poland and former Galician towns now in the Ukraine.
Finally, I would like to add a personal note. While I signed the
announcements that appeared on the JRI-Poland, JewishGen and Gesher Galicia
lists, the success of JRI-Poland must be attributed to the dedication and
competence of those with whom I am honored to share leadership - executive
committee members Judy Baston, Mark Halpern, and Michael Tobias, and the
entire JRI-Poland board.
All of the board members wear other hats and have various responsibilities
in helping JRI-Poland reach its goals. I would like to mention these
others, Jeffrey Cymbler, Howard Fink, Alan Greenberg, Peter Jassem, Roni
Liebowitz, Hadassah Lipsius, Robinn Magid, Wlodzimierz Rozenbaum, Sheila
Salo, Susan Stone and Daniel Wagner.
And, I might add, thanks must also go to the both the Archive Coordinators
and Town Leaders who tirelessly fundraise for the indexing of their towns'
records and share their knowledge about their town with their fellow
Executive Director, Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
