Project coordinators are needed for the following yizkor book
projects: Antopol, Belarus; Brest, Belarus; Przemysl, Poland; and
Sanok, Poland. If your ancestral roots are in one of these towns,
won't you consider how to coordinate the translation of the yizkor
book? Please contact me if you are interested.
