I am kicking off a campaign to raise money to translate the remainder of the
Lenin, Belarus Yizkor Book. To date we have put on line under the
auspices of JewishGen's Yizkor Book Project English translations of the Hebrew and
Yiddish Tables of Contents as well as 4 articles, photos and their captions,
and the community register, a listing of those lost in the Holocaust. This
work has been done by volunteers. If you would like to see this work, go to
the following URL; http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/lenin/lenin.html .

If you are fluent (native) in Hebrew or Yiddish, have good English and
MSWord skills and would like to donate translation of one or more articles please
email me.

However if we are to get the remaining 225 pages translated in a timely
fashion we will need to hire professional translators through the Yizkor Book
Project. The total estimated cost is $8514. To get the project in motion I
have donated $500.00. If you would like to participate with a donation, the
procedure will be as follows:

If you would like to donate to this project and would like to have specific
articles translated, email me privately and I will send you by attachment a
schedule listing the articles in the Tables of Contents together with their
page locations as well as the number of pages to be translated and the cost of
translation for each article. Depending on the size of the article the costs
start at $20.00. You can then list the articles you would like to have
translated, total the cost and using the donation form linked to the Lenin URL
above make the donation of at least that amount of money to the JewishGen Yizkor
Book project. BE SURE YOU CLICK THE LENIN DONATION BUTTON TO ENSURE THAT
THE MONEY GETS ALLOCATED TO THE LENIN YB PROJECT. The Yizkor Book Project form
states that donations are tax deductible for American and Canadian citizens.

Once you have made your donation, email me with the amount of your donation
and the list of articles you want translated. Any money donated above the
amount to cover your articles will be used to translate any remaining articles.
We will translate articles in the order that donations are received. We
may accumulate articles to be translated to make it worthwhile for the
translator.

If you have any questions please email me.
