Yizkor Books #YizkorBooks May update for Yizkor Book Project #yizkorbooks


Joyce Field
 

In May 2004 we added 3 new books and 12 updates to the Yizkor Book
Translations page. All translations can be accessed >from
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html.

It is appropriate at this time to thank all the groups that make this
project possible. First, let's recognize the internationally-based
volunteers who work on your behalf to get the translations online
within days of your submission: Lance Ackerfeld (Israel), Max Heffler
(US), and Osnat Ramaty (Germany). Without their dedication this
project could not be successful. Second, without all the donors who
have translated yizkor books or had them translated and then donated
the material to JewishGen, we would not have been successful either.
There is also a third party that should be recognized: JewishGen.
Without its support, financial and organizational, the Yizkor Book
Project could not have been established and have grown. Finally,
without the permission of the landsmanschaftn and other parties, we
could not put the translations online. This remarkable cooperative
arrangement has worked well since 1997.

Please remember that if you want to find if a yizkor book was
written about your ancestral town, you can check that online at the
Yizkor Book Database, http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html.
