February 2001 update for Yizkor Book Project

How do our wonderful volunteers do it month after month? On the one
hand, we have our donors who contribute translations of yizkor books
and on the other hand, we have our html staff who turn those
translations into magnificent web pages. To all of them my heartiest
congratulations for their amazing work and their dedication to
unlocking the wonders of the yizkor books by translating them into
English so they will accessible to a wider audience.

February is always a short month. Nevertheless, we added 7 new books
and updated 13 others, a great achievement. The first translated
chapter >from the Pinkas HaKehillot, Sadagura, went online on the
last day of February. We are still trying to determine the best way
to list all the translated chapters >from this massive encyclopedia,
so be sure to check under different categories until we post a
message notifying you how these translations will be categorized on
the index page at http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html.

As always I would like to call your attention to the yizkor book
fundraising projects which need your support. Many of our yizkor
books can be translated only by professional translators who are paid
for their remarkable work. If you have been helped by these
translations, please show your appreciation by providing financial
support so that more can be translated and put online. Some of the
projects are languishing because of a lack of funds. We know you
are reading these translations as there were almost 111,000 hits on
the yizkor book web site in February.
