Yizkor Book Project, September 2011 #scandinavia


Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Since I wanted to be in time to wish our avid
Yizkor-Book-Project-monthly-reports readers a Shana Tova, a Gut Yor or just
a common or garden, very Happy New Year, I'm sending this out before the end
of the month. I assume, also, that most of you are quite busy with preparing
for Rosh Hashana and so I promise not to take up too much of your time.

This month we added a number of new books including the "The History of Jews
in Ujpest" with a shocking long necrology of almost 10,000 names with
important details of the martyrs >from this community. As far as new entries
go, apart >from an impressive number of new Lithuanian entries (45), we also
added in and entry on Szombathely, Hungary and Narewka, Poland. I remind
those of you who are interested in the translation of a community appearing
in any one of the Pinkasei Kehillot (Encyclopedias of Jewish Communities),
to please contact me and I will explain how this can come about.

This month we also added in a new Translation Fund to raise money to engage
a professional translator for the Tarnogrod, Poland - Yizkor Book which
whilst well underway, still requires some financial support to help us
translate the entire book. If you are interested in donating to this effort
or any other of the 45 or so projects, please go to the Yizkor Book
JewishGen-erosity page:
