Re: Yizkor Book Project #belarus


Rom Sig,

Is there a yiskor book for or any info on the shtetl called Boguslav,

If so, I would appreciate anything you can tell me.

Also, has anything more done on the Yiskor book for Telenesht,
Romania/Moldova? I was a financial contributor to the completion of the
Book a few years ago.

February, a short month? We at the Yizkor Book Project have laughed in the
face of this short month and are pleased to announce that we have added and
updated a record number projects during it. Also during this month, a number
of new, exciting projects have begun to brew and, hopefully, in my next
report I'll be able to provide more details of them.

This month I would like to send out a sincere salute a wonderful group of
people who are currently volunteering their free time in translating Hebrew
and Yiddish into English. Their uniqueness is that each of them has worked
on quite a number of projects and helped their advance for the benefit of us
all. So my humble thanks go out this month to: Ruthy Erez, Yocheved
Klausner, Sara Mages, Thia Persoff, Pamela Russ, Francine Shapiro & Esther

While we're talking about translations, if any of you out there are
interested in helping to finance the translation of the 47 page section on
Lviv (Lemberg) >from Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities, Poland), please contact me privately. In general, if you have
interest in financing any of the articles >from these pinkasim
(encyclopedias) I'd be happy to hear >from you and I'll explain how it can be

Does any one know if there exists a list of names of Jewish
residents of Sadgora, Bukovina between the years 1890-1910.
And or if there are any census on line of this period of names
of Jewish residents of Sadgora.
