Yizkor Book Project, August 2014 #germany

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>


Well here we are again after another month of boisterous activity in the
Yizkor Book Project and here I am letting you know a little of what
transpired during August 2014.

Before continuing, I would like to correct an important fact >from my last
report. In my excitement in reporting the completion of a number of
projects, I incorrectly announced two finalized projects. All the words
were there - they just weren't in the right place, and my apologies to
the people involved. So the two books that I am referring to and their
correct coordinators were:

- Serock, Poland (The book of Serock) -
coordinated by Howard Orenstein and Israel H. Mida
- Sierpc, Poland (The Community of Sierpc; Memorial Book) -
coordinated by Sandra Krisch and Dorothy Lipsky

This past month, quite a few new books were added and a large number
of updates were made to our existing, rapidly growing projects.
In particular, I would like to point out that quite a few necrologies
and indexes were recently added to our online projects.
Together with the fact that the Yizkor books contain a wealth of
information of the lifestyles and history of the lost communities,
quite a few contain lists of people together with details of their
close family and facts like date of birth, death, profession and
so on, which provide an invaluable tool for researchers. The
work preparing these lists demands attention to detail, background
knowledge and lastly - a great deal of time. I would like to thank the
people currently working on these lists - Beryl Baleson, Shalom Bronstein,
Madeleine Isenberg & Judy Petersen for their dedication and incredible
amounts of time that they put in to making these lists available to all.
Of course, a large number of volunteers have been involved in preparing
these lists over the years and they are credited listed at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ - many thanks to all!

As I assume my next report will come out somewhere between Rosh Hashana and
Yom Kippur, I would like to wish you all and your families an early, but
heartfelt, sweet and otherwise wonderful Shana Tova.
