Orhei (Orgeyev), Moldova yizkor book completed #yizkorbooks

I am happy to announce that the Orhei, Moldova yizkor book is now
complete and online. There is an Insert at the beginning of the book
which includes all surnames >from the book and where they can be found.
Hopefully this will help you in locating family members if you don't
have time to read the whole book.

I would like to thank everyone who helped both financially and by
volunteering to make this all possible - there are too many people to
name all of them. However, I would like to especially thank three
people who I believe deserve special recognition. First, Lance
Ackerfeld who has put all of this information online (over 200 pages,
more than 125 chapters and 250 pictures). Lance is one of the Jewishgen
volunteers who works behind the scenes and rarely gets any recognition -
and he deserves plenty. Secondly, Jerrold Landau who did a large
portion of the Hebrew translation. An excellent translator who can
always be counted on to do a superb job - couldn't have done it without
him. And finally, Marsha Kayser who translated most of the Yiddish and
some of the Hebrew. She volunteered numerous hours and money to this
effort and kept me going when I was ready to give up. She was truly my
saviour.
