The swift response to my request for help translating the beautiful old map of Bessarabia into
English means I now have a complete translation, thanks to a generous volunteer in Israel and
another >from Germany. This is the beauty of JewishGen!
Now the project goes to a graphic designer, to see if/how we can create an English twin. I will
post it if/when we are successful.
This is one extraordinary community.
