Improvements at JewishGen #germany
News >from GerSIG Moderator - March 2005
1. A few days agoGerSIG membership reached 1,000 for the first time ever. I don't
know the reason for the sudden growth but we now number 1,012 members.
2. JewishGen is continuing to upgrade the systems we use to
manage SIG subscriptions and user email address updates.
You will find a link to the new SIG subscription

Please remember that improvements like these require the
purchase of new machines (hardware) and programs (software).

Use the link to "JewishGenerosity" at the top of this email
