** The transliterated Name Index to the Ekaterinoslav Yiskor Book will be put
online in short order. I still don't have someone to coordinate the book's
translation. It only has 167 pages.
More information on Yiskor Book translations:
Yizkor (Memorial) Books are some of the best sources for learning about
Jewish communities in Eastern and Central Europe. Groups of former
residents, or landsmanshaftn, have published these books as a tribute to
their former homes and the people who were murdered during the Holocaust.
The majority of these books were written in Hebrew or Yiddish, languages
that many contemporary genealogists cannot read or understand.
The JewishGen Yizkor Book Project was organized in 1994 by a group of
JewishGen volunteers led by Leonard Markowitz and Martin Kessel. A
translation project was developed by Susannah Juni and implemented by Joyce
Field. It is our purpose to unlock the valuable information contained in
Yizkor Books so that genealogists and others can learn more about their
heritage. For more information, see the Yizkor Book Project Site at
Can someone please step forward & supervise this translation project for the
benefit of our SIG?
