Shalom,

OK, this report I won't mention statistics or the fact that the Yizkor Book
Project team carried out 73 new books, entries and updates during August.
No, I won't mention them because what is really important is that the YB
Project is continuously on the move and the list below is certainly
testimony to this fact and the people behind the statistics are much more
important, so thank you all of you good people behind these achievements.

It's not hard to see that a remarkably large number of Lithuanian
communities have been added this month. In addition to the numerous entries
that are added regularly each month >from Pinkas Lita (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities: Lithuania), this month an impressive new book has been added -
"Preserving Our Litvak Heritage, Volume II", chapters of which have been
kindly donated by Josef Rosin and Joel Alpert, and the first articles of
which you'll find listed below.

I am very pleased to note that my call for html help brought about a very
positive response and that Jason Hallgarten has now joined our little team
and within a short space of time has helped add in a large number of
translations. We thank him for what he's done so far and hope he continues
ever onwards.

And more news. We are in the process of adding in the complete translation
of the Lyubcha, Belarus Yizkor Book - "Lubtch and Delatich; in memory of the
Jewish community" and kudos go out to Ann Belinsky who also help translate
and is also coordinating this project. Hopefully, within the next few months
the whole book will appear online for the benefit of all.

And yet more news. The Yizkor Book in Print (YBIP) Project is slowly taking
shape and I'd like to take this opportunity to ask those coordinators who
have a completed online and project and are interested in seeing their
project in hard copy, please contact Joel Alpert or myself.

As always, I'd like to remind those who would like to see "their" community
Yizkor Book translated and online, to contact me and I will assist, as much
as possible, in seeing this dream become a reality. Other than that, if you
don't feel able to take on the coordination of such a project but would like
to support those that are going on, please go to the Yizkor Book
JewishGen-erosity page:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

Perhaps you'll see that it just so happens that there is a Translation Fund
for "your" community and your financial assistance, big or small, can make
the difference in seeing the translation project go forward.
