To make a contribution to translation projects, please see
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23>,
where you can make an online donation or print the form to submit a
contribution by mail. Please note all the projects that need
financial assistance. Kolomyya, Ukraine is a new fundraising project,
added in January. Bedzin, Poland; Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland; and
Zambrow, Poland are projects added at the end of 2007.

The Necrology Index, http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/, has
been updated recently. The JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology Database
indexes the names of persons in the necrologies - the lists of
Holocaust martyrs - published in the Yizkor Books appearing on the
JewishGen Yizkor Book Translation Project. This database is only an
index of names; it directs researchers back to the Yizkor Book
itself, where more complete information may be available.

This database allows the surnames to be searched via soundex.
Because most of these names were transliterated >from Hebrew and
Yiddish, the spellings of the surnames may not be as you are used to
seeing them in Latin-alphabet sources.

Please contact me privately if you would like to coordinate a new
translation project.
