Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia The Brody Cemetery Project - 2nd call #galicia

Dear Researchers:

Two months ago I posted an announcement on the new Brody cemetery
project.

Thus far we raised less than half of the required budget >from only 16
contributors (out of over 300 Brody registered researchers).

Since the first announcement, we have done the following:
- Completed a one-day survey at the cemetery, which helped us to
estimate the required work.
- Put out a proposal for photographing the gravestones and reviewed
several responding bids.
- Selected a photographer
- Defined the scope of work

We want to begin photography next month, but whether we can get the
work done is up to you! We cannot sign a contract for work without
the adequate funding and this is the best season in which to do the
photography.

In order to have it happen, we need your help in raising the required
$4,500.

Please consider giving generously so that the work may begin now!
