A Shana Tova to all and a message from our hosts at Jewishgen #poland #warsaw

Dear Friends:

As we prepare to celebrate the New Year please take a moment to consider
that JewishGen provides us with the vital source for our ongoing
genealogical research. JewishGen is still one of the only free
genealogical sitesfree to us, but not free to JewishGen who must bear the
monthly expense of providing all the resources we use daily without a
second thought. These are costs that must be met to overcome the current

To continue as a public service institution, JewishGen has launched the
first Annual New Year Donor Appeal. The goal is to raise $300,000 to carry
us through to the end of 2002 and to acquire the necessary hardware and
software applications for improved databases scheduled to begin going
online by October. There are two million records >from Yad Vashem and
other sources waiting to be made available to us!

The financial support of each and every one of us is needed if JewishGen is
to continue as the only free site for Jewish genealogical research. Give
what you can afford, be it $25, the suggested annual minimum, or $100 (or
more) which will enroll you in the JGFFAlert. This is a system that
informs you via immediate e-mail if another researcher enters data into the
JGFF that has the potential of linking to your family names.

Please go now to
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/contribute.ihtml. With your
permission, your name will be listed on a special 2002 Annual New Year
Donor Appeal recognition site. We are asking that all our users make a
donation to the very best of their financial ability. Consider scheduling a monthly deduction
from your credit card if this works best for you.
On behalf of JewishGen and our very best wishes
for a healthy, happy and peaceful New Year.
