HTML volunteers needed for the ShtetLinks Project #usa


Susana Leistner Bloch
 

When we submitted a previous message, asking for volunteers to help
create ShtetLinks webpages several people responded and we now have
10 dedicated and overworked volunteers.

We have a long waiting list of people who have significant material
about their ancestral town / shtetl and would like to create a webpage
dedicated to the Jewish community that once lived there.
Unfortunately, they do not have the necessary technical skills to
create a webpage.

Our webpages are Cyberspace Yizkor Books. Just as the former
residents and survivors of a shtetl took it upon themselves to record
all they could remember and publish a Yizkor Book in memory of the
Jewish community that once lived there, so we, the next generation,
should make sure that whatever we have, every little bit of
information that sheds light on the lives of our people is recorded
and preserved.

If you have the necessary skills, we urge you to volunteer and help
someone create a webpage dedicated to a shtetl / town and in this way
honour and memorialize the Jewish community that once lived there and
provide a valuable resource for future generations of their descendants.
