Some of you may be aware that Howard Margol has been ill. He has stepped down as
Coordinator of the LitvakSIG Internal Passport Project, which he founded in 2007
after discovering these very valuable documents on a trip to Lithuania.
I will be overseeing the completion of the translations of the Vilnius
Passports. Please direct any questions to me at <esjoachim@...>.
