JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Yizkor Book Project, November 2010 #general


Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Before outlining what has transpired in the month of November in the Yizkor
Book Project, I would like to take time to salute our very (very) small but
extremely dedicated team of volunteer htmlers - Max Heffler & Osnat Ramaty.
These wonderful people have been in the Yizkor Book for many, many years and
their experience, patience and never-say-no attitude is very much
appreciated. Max is also multi-tasking in a great deal of other projects and
he is the man behind the regular updates of our necrology database - an
extra salute to him! The necrology database, by-the-way, can be researched
at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

And on the subject of research, I am often sent messages asking if a Yizkor
book is available for a particular community. If this is a question you're
been asking yourself, I highly recommend you look at our Yizkor Book
database to see what book(s) are available for the community you're
researching and if we have a Yizkor Book Project already online, you will
note a hot link to the available translation in our site.

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html

Something new to our projects. We have began adding in hot links (where
appropriate) >from project main pages to the original Yizkor Books that are
available at the NY Public Library site:

http://legacy.www.nypl.org/research/chss/jws/yizkorbookonline.cfm

Since we have hundreds of books, we still have a lot to add but we see this
a great help for those who are able to read the books in their original
languages, and is on our long list of "things-to-do".

As always, the Yizkor Book Project relies on the help of its many volunteers
and if you feel that you have time to assist - knowledge in translation or
editing not a must, I would definitely like to hear >from you.

Now to the November figures. During this last month we have added these 4
