Scandinavia SIG #Scandinavia Yizkor Book Project, March 2011 #scandinavia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>


The Yizkor Book Project has slightly less to report this month - we simply
went >from extremely busy to very, very busy and there is certainly no reason
to be embarrassed about the level of activity of the project through March.
In fact, I continue to be encouraged by the great number of people who show
interest in the project and also take concrete steps to see translations
from that well of knowledge, the Yizkor Book, appear online in our site.
I'm pleased to announce that this past month saw the completion of a
translation of the Skuodas, Lithuania Yizkor Book through the determined and
energetic coordination of Aviva Tirosh. This project joins the some 70 books
that have been completely translated and on the horizon I see a number of
other such projects being completed in and this is solely due to the time
and effort placed in these projects by their coordinators.

Something else. A number of coordinators have asked us to add in Google
Analytics coding so that they can keep a track of the visits to their
projects. If this interests you and you are the coordinator of a particular
project, please let me know and we'll help include this option in your
