Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Yizkor Book Project, May 2010 #lithuania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>


Happily the month of May saw a continued hubbub of activity in the
Yizkor Book project. So many out there are contributing to the
success of the project and at every opportunity I send out my thanks
to the coordinators, volunteers and translators for the incredible
work they are doing in keeping the flame of our lost families and
communities alive. If there is a Yizkor Book that has yet to appear
in our index and it is close to your heart, please contact me and I
will assist, as much as possible in helping you to see translations
of this book online.

During this last month we also added two new Translation Fund Projects:

These were begun in order to engage professional translators who will help
facilitate dreams of seeing the whole translation of these books online.

If you are able to assist financially to these particular books them or any
of those appearing at
your donation would be very much appreciated.

Please remember that all this month's additions and updates have been
flagged at to make it
easy to find them.

Wishing you all the best,
