Re: A new "names" database? #names
Joan A. Baronberg
I want to second David Lewin's suggestion in the item above.
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind ourselves that Jewishgen started years ago as a way to reinforce the sense of "community." These days, and especially for newcomers, it seems to have developed more as a data base and even a way for people to get paid to do what they previously saw as volunteering. I don't mean to underestimate the importance of "data" nor overemphasize the importance of us operating as a "community. Rather, I want to remind us to do both and to value both.This might be a good time (between Rosh haShanah and Yom Kippur) to examine such things.
