Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Webpage design volunteers needed for the KehilaLinks Project #galicia


Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Dear Friends,

Although we have a wonderful team of dedicated and overworked
volunteers, there are not enough of them and prospective webpage
owners have to wait a long time to get technical help.

Our webpages are "Virtual Yizkor Books". Just as former residents took
it upon themselves to record all they could remember and publish a
Yizkor Book in memory of their Jewish community, so we, the next
generation, should make sure that whatever we have, every little bit of
information that sheds light on the lives of our Jewish communities is
recorded and preserved. The people who published Yizkor Books usually
were in contact with others living in the same town or country. Contact
with their landsmen in other countries was difficult. To us, in the 21st
century, there are no limitations. Cyberspace has opened up the world
to us.

If you have the necessary skills we urge you to volunteer and help
someone create a webpage dedicated to a Kehila / Shtetl / Gemeinde /
Town / Immigrant Neighbourhood, and in this way honour and
memorialize the Jewish community that once lived there and also
provide a valuable resource for their descendants.

Please contact us : <bloch@mts.net>
