CORRECTED Yizkor Book Report for July 2008 #rabbinic


Joyce Field
 

The Yizkor Book Project Report posted earlier this week was a repost
of last month's report. Apologies for this inadvertent error.
--

During the month of July 2008 the Yizkor Book Project added three new
books, two new entries, and 11 updates. All additions have been flagged at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it easy for
researchers to find them. At this site all translations are also listed in
four categories: regions, communities, miscellaneous, and other languages.

Also note the Yizkor Book Database at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html>, which is a master
bibliographic database of most published yizkor books and other books
written about particular towns or areas. Another valuable resource is the
necrology index at <http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/>, which is an
index of the names of persons in the necrologies--the lists of Holocaust
martyrs--published in our translated yizkor books. The necrologies are also
searchable at the Holocaust Database at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/>.

New books:

-Konotop, Ukraine
-Miedzyrzec Podlaski, Poland
-Suwalki, Poland: necrology submitted by Yad Vashem

New entries:

-Malacky, Slovakia: Pinkas HaKehillot Slovakia
-Pecovska Nova Ves, Slovakia: Pinkas HaKehillot Slovakia

Updates:

-Bedzin, Poland
-Bialystok, Poland
-Dabrowa Garnicza, Poland
-Dusetos, Lithuania
-Kalarash, Moldova
-Nowy Sacz, Poland
-Oradea, Romania
-Pinsk, Belarus: volumes 1 and 2
-Radzyn Podlaski, Poland
-The Last of the Freiburgs

Please contact me privately if you would like to start a yizkor book
translation project. I hope to see many of you in Chicago and get to meet
in person the wonderful contributors to the Yizkor Book Project. Remember to
make financial donations to the yizkor book fundraising projects and to the
JewishGen General Fund at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23>.
Your donations are needed to continue the translation of these important books.
