JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Translators Needed for "Vsia Rossiia" #general
A genealogist in Maryland has provided copies of the Russian Business
Directory for the Minsk Gubernia, "Vsia Rossiia", to members of the Belarus
Special Interest Group. I am looking for volunteer translators to assist with
a translation effort. Approximatelty 1200 individuals are listed in this
section of the directory. Perhaps each translator could begin with 100 names.
Eventually, the data would be posted in a searchable database on the Net. The
transliteration standards used by the group working on the Grodno voter lists
found at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/grodno.htm#p6 woul also be
appropriate for this project. Please e-mail me if you are willing to
participate in this exciting project. If you are interested in working on the
Vitebsk or Mogilev Gubernia please contact Dave Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org.
