JewishGen servers safe and back in business #latvia

Elsebeth Paikin

Dear all,

I am sure that we have all missed JewishGen while the server
was being brought to safety when hurricane Rita approaced
Houston and then - after Rita had passed - back to Houston.

This will just remind us all of what the world would be
without JewishGen. What an ansolutely dreadful thought!

I therefore first of all want to thank to all those behind the
scenes that took precautions and made sure that the server was
evacuated in time. I am quite sure that it must have meant a
lot of extra work for all involved.

Second I would suggest that we all donate an amount - small or
large - to JewishGen, in gratitude and to compensate for the
expenses of evacuation. I don't know - but I am sure that it must
have cost quite a lot. I myself have just send a donation via

Last but not least I hope and pray that those JewishGenners whose
homes were in Rita's path are all well and that no or not much
damage was done to their homes.

Best wishes
