All additions have been flagged at the alphabetical index at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html. You can check
whether a yizkor book for your town has been published at the Yizkor
Book Database at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html. You
can check whether there is an article on your town in a Pinkas
HaKehillot volume by consulting the table of contents for the
appropriate volume at the Index page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html under Regions. The
tables of contents for all 19 volumes of the Pinkasim have now been
translated and are online. Please consider translating an article
about your ancestral town (all are in Hebrew) or financially
supporting a translation. Contact me privately to discuss the
options. In December we will have online a good number of
translations >from the Pinkas HaKehillot Germany, due to the response
to the recent addition of the tables of contents >from these volumes.

Many thanks to the donors of translations and the donors of money to
the Yizkor Book Projects.
