Yizkor Book Project, November 2009 #sephardic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>


Whilst 2009 is winding down, we certainly aren't and during this November we
saw a hubbub of activity in the JewishGen Project. We saw the addition of
some brand new projects and the first sparks of projects that are on their
way. As always, the figures speak out for themselves:

During this last month we have added these 4 new projects:

Bielsko Biala, Poland
Cluj-Napoca, Romania
Ratno, Ukraine* (the "kickoff" of a very new Translations Project)
Tasnad, Romania

Added 4 new entries:

Anyksciai, Lithuania (Pinkas Lita)
Hajdusamson, Hungary (Pinkas Hungary)
Hodmezovasarhely, Hungary (Pinkas Hungary)
Narayev, Ukraine (Berezhany Yizkor Book)

And finally, we have updated 19 existing projects:

Bedzin, Poland
Berezhany, Ukraine (revival of a long dormant project)
Brzeziny, Poland
Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa)
Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland
Dembitz, Poland (Polish pages)
Dusetos, Lithuania
Goniadz, Poland
Kaluszyn, Poland
Katowice, Poland
Kutno, Poland
Lithuania (Lite)
Lubartow, Poland (addition of necrology)
Nowy Sacz, Poland (Sandzer Memorial Journal)
Ruzhany, Belarus
Ryki, Poland (Polish pages)
Svencionys, Lithuania
Tighina (Bendery), Moldova
Zelechow, Poland (Polish pages)

Please remember that all this month's additions and updates have been
flagged at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html to make it
easy to find them.

*Note that Ratno is included in the Yizkor Book Translation Projects at:


and your financial assistance to this or any of the other growing projects
there would be most welcome.

I look forward to even busier December and am always glad to receive
feedback and new initiatives for our Yizkor Book project.

All the very best,
Lance Ackerfeld
Yizkor Book Project Manager
