Yizkor Book Project Report for July 2008 #rabbinic


Joyce Field
 

During July 2008 the Yizkor Book Project added two new books, four
new entries, and 13 updates. All this month's additions have been
flagged at < http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html > to
make it easy for researchers to find them. At
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html translations are
listed in four categories: regions, communities, miscellaneous, and
other languages. There is also a Yizkor Book Database, a master
bibliographic database of most published yizkor books and other
books written about particular towns or areas. The Database is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html .
