JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Steve ZEDECK ---thank you! #general


Dear Fellow Researchers,

When I first joined Jewishgen and Jewish Records Indexing - Poland back
in 1997, Steve ZEDECK was there. When I became the Belchatow Shtetl CO-
OP Coordinator with JRI-Poland, Steve was available to guide me through
producing charts and tables for the internet and quietly fixed all the
flaws before uploading my material. When I was sending almost daily
updates for the Polish Business Directory volunteer table and the JRI-
Poland Inventories, he uploaded the information within hours, sometimes
minutes, of my requests. He answered all technical questions easily and
generously and no question was too basic for him to give it a respectful

The databases he created were unique and advanced all our personal
genealogical discoveries. He unassuminglly shared his technical expertise
and time, a great deal of time, with so many of us. His behind the
scenes creations were the foundations of so much of our work and will
continue to be the cornerstone for what we do in the future.

Gratitude and all good things to Steve on his retirement as webmaster of
JRI-Poland. Good wishes for all his future endeavors. He will be missed,
but hope he stops by now and then and spends some future time in the
Jewish genealogical world.

Warm regards and gratitude,
Roni Seibel Liebowitz
