Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Changes in OWBR #ukraine
Joyce Field <jfield@...>
I am pleased to announce that Ernie Fine has accepted the challenge
of taking over as Technical Coordinator of the OWBR, the ONLINE
WORLDWIDE BURIAL REGISTRY,
After completing the initial phase of the Yizkor Book Necrology
Database (which was launched today at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor), Ernie had proven his
mettle and was eager for the challenges of another important project.
Needless to say, he will still be working on updates to the Necrology
Harriet Brown, who has served and will continue to serve the Yizkor
Book Project in numerous important functions, is taking over
additional duties as the OWBR Administrative Coordinator. Rebecca
Gerber continues her vital data entry functions for OWBR.
Henceforth, all OWBR donor agreements should be sent to Harriet Brown
and all data to Ernie Fine. Their postal addresses are listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/. They can be reached by
Harriet Brown: hnbrown@...
Ernie Fine: efine@...
If you want to volunteer to coordinate collecting burial information
for a city or state or country, please contact me, Joyce Field, at
jfield@.... If you have burial data to contribute, please
read the instructions at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/
and contact Harriet Brown if you have questions.
Every JewishGen project is successful only because of the people who
volunteer their time and talents to the project. There are never
enough compliments for these dedicated people and never enough
adjectives to describe their brilliant work. My sincere wishes for
a new year full of success and fulfillment to all our volunteers and
donors of data.
JewishGen VP, Research
