work load #yizkorbooks
Joyce Field <jfield@...>
Dear Yizkor Book readers,
Good news and bad news.
The good news is that >from January to June of this year we added 57
new translated books and 60 updates to our web site at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html. More good news:
we also have more books in the html queue than we have ever had.
The bad news is that even though we have doubled our html staff over
the past year, we are still behind. This is summer and everyone,
including our dedicated volunteers, should take some time off and
spend time with family. In addition, two of our volunteers have
daughters being Bat Mitzvah this summer. You can appreciate the
parents' commitment to that event.
So we ask all of our wonderful donors, without whom this project
would not exist, to be patient. We are in the process of adding
more technical staff who can help us handle the work load as the
amount of work that is being submitted is longer and more complex.
May I hear a rousing round of applause for the hard working Yizkor
Book Project volunteers!!!
Yizkor Book Project Manager
