I wish to express my great appreciation for the project you are undertaki=
I cannot find the words. Hopefully some others will take you as an exampl=
especially institutions (in Israel) whose job is to do this for the Jewis=
h nation.=20
Considering so many years of neglect and devastation of the European=20
Jewish graveyards, it is about time for a worldwide national effort.

Several years ago i visited the native vilage of my father-in-law near Ko=
He hardly remembered where the Jewish cemetery was. Then by a miracle,=20
by the side of a relatively new road by the christian cemetery we found=20
several Jewish stones almost completely buried and overgrown by vegetatio=

And more than a miracle, one of them was of his younger brother who died=20
as child before WWII.

I assume now that either the stones served as construction material by th=
vilagers or they're buried under the pavement. That's why stones must be=20
recorded all over Europe, AND FAST.

My oppinion (wishful thinking).=20

And professional and we, sparetime, genalogists can and can/should be par=
of the taskforce (this way or another). I see so many people all over the=
turn over stones, browse old records, papers, documents, etc., surely we=20
can lend our small shoulders.
