Yizkor Book Project, July 2011 #hungary


Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Whilst the Guinness Book of Records Team are seemingly quite apathetic to
our impressive figure of 73 new books, entries and updated projects during
July 2011, we at the Yizkor Book Project, are more than very pleased with
this achievement.

Indeed, there were a number of milestones that took place this month as we
completed adding in the last set of the 18 Kremenets booklets (details
below), thanks to the dedicated coordination of Ron Doctor, the meticulous
editing by Ellen Garshick and excellent translations by Sara Mages, Thia
Persoff and others. The work on these booklets continues as we speak and we
look forward to seeing further additions to them as time goes on.

This month also saw the culmination of two online Yizkor Books. The first
being the "Memorial Book of the Community of Ostrow-Mazowiecka" book which
was coordinated by Judie Goldstein, who also did the bulk of the
translations in this project and who deserves a heartfelt "yashar koach" for
seeing the project through to its successful completion. I would also like
to thank Stanley Diamond for his important assistance behind the scenes and
particularly, in helping assemble the images >from the book to be placed
online. Quite a team!

The other book that was completely placed online, this month, was "The
destruction of Proskurov", the translation of which, was kindly donated by
Anne M. Brennan.

And speaking of completed books, the Yizkor Book Project recently set up the
Yizkor Books in Print initiative under the guiding wings of Joel Alpert to
prepare hard copies of the books that have completely translated within the
Yizkor Book Project. After sending out a call for volunteers, Joel and I
were thrilled by the messages of support that we received for this
initiative and also the encouraging response >from volunteers who offered
their skills in the myriad tasks required for this project. However, in
spite of the many offers of assistance that we did receive, there are a
still a number of positions that we still need to fill:

- A Publicity Specialist to take care of publicizing these books in as many
directions as possible.
- Document Coordinator to submit applications for Copyrights, Library of
Congress Numbers, ISBN numbers and keeping track of submittals and
responses.

If one of these positions suits your abilities or you would like to learn
more about this new initiative, please look at:

would like to take on, please contact Joel Alpert via the link appearing on
this page.

And on responses, I was also pleased by the incredible response for my cry
for html help and our ranks have now been joined by Jason Hallgarten who has
already shown himself to be an important boost to our little team. There are
a number of others who have shown interest and are trying their hand at
preparing our web pages and we look forward to expanding our team even
further. We also received encouraging response >from a number of volunteers
who are have now begun helping prepare the necrology database files - help
that was sorely needed.
