Yad Vashem #general


Sallyann Sack <sallyannsack@...>
 

Dear Colleagues,

A full report on the Yad Vashem project to computerize all of its lists
of names into a single database starts on page 4 of most current issue of
AVOTAYNU [Vol. XIV, No. 4, Winter 1998].

A more detailed listing of its genealogically valuable holdings may be
ofund in the book Jewish Genealogical Research in Israel by Sallyann Sack
and the Israel Genealogical Society (Avotaynu, 1995).

The most recent report I have had >from Yaacov Lozowick is a reprint of a
recent Associated Press item saying that Yad Vashem has forwarded one
million computerized names to the Volker Commission which is
investigating the unpaid Swiss bank account.
