This is the last yizkor book monthly report that I will be writing as
I am leaving JewishGen at the end of this month. It is impossible for
me to describe how much I have enjoyed seeing this project grow and
prosper in the past decade. None of this success could have been
possible without the dedication of all the donors,translators, and
project coordinators who have contributed their talents to this
project and without the tireless devotion of the staff of this
project--Lance Ackerfeld, Israel; Osnat Ramaty, Germany; Max Heffler,
U.S. Our stated goal was by translating these books into English to
unlock the valuable information contained in yizkor books so that
genealogists and others can learn more about their heritage. We have,
I believe, succeeded in the past ten years but there is still much to
be done. My best wishes to all for your future successes.
