the same program. I was hoping Dr. Ostrer would be able to refer
us to someone at the UN. Buffalo who would be capable of presenting
such a program. Any suggestions ????
Thank You Muriel Selling

Report from Yizkor Book Project #general

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

To JewishGenners:

Yizkor Book Update, December 2000 and Year 2000

As we enter 2001, it is the time to reflect on the accomplishments
of the Yizkor Book Project for the year, and they are considerable,
because of all the people who translated and donated material to us
and because of the dedicated volunteers of the html group under John
Berman.

We now have 255 entries and there were updates to 122 books during
the year. They are available at
http://www.JewishGen.org/yizkor/translations.html.

One of our notable achievements was announced last week -- the
Necrology Index at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/.
This project was implemented by Ernie Fine, project manager, and
his talented volunteers; Michael Tobias, the JewishGen database guru;
Warren Blatt, who coordinated the myriad of technical details to get
the index online; and John Berman, who worked on the yizkor book
database. Another remarkable achievement, although invisible, is
the tune up that Michael Tobias has done on the yizkor book database.
Complex projects such as the necrology index are always a team effort
and we are indeed fortunate to have talented people working on these
projects.

New Entries for December 2000

-Galician Jewish Celebrities (check under Regions)
-Borislav, Ukraine
-Gorodek Jagiellonski, Ukraine
-Kobylnik, Belarus
-Wysockie-Mazowieckie, Poland
-Zareby Koscielne, Poland

-Oswiecim, Poland

Depending on size, content, and format of the document - I would
suggest you take a look at ViewMate
(http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate) - go over the purpose and process
sections to see if it will meet your needs.

Now, how do I get someone to READ the durned thing? I think I could get it
translated locally if I could figure out what the script says, or even make
some marginal sense with a computer program, but it does not good if I can't
read the script. Any ideas or leads for readers?

Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

ShtetLinks Report #ukraine

FREYAB@...
 

Subject: New Year's Report
From: Chuck Weinstein <cweinstein@jewishgen.org>
Date: Mon, 01 Jan 2001 11:16:31 -0800
X-Message-Number: 5

Well, the year 2000 is gone, but it has been quite a year Shtetlinks!
All of you who are reading this and who have contributed in one way or
another to ShtetLinks can take pride in our accomplishments this year.

The number of ShtetLinks sites hosted on JewishGen's servers has grown
from 126 in January, 2000 to 164 as of last evening. There are three
more sites awaiting final approval, which should be up shortly. We are
now receiving some 250,000 hits per month on the JewishGen hosted
sites. This represents a 50% increase >from April, when those statistics
first began being collected. Since January, 2000, we have more than
doubled the number of actual pages on our server and the size of this
project has grown >from 109 Mb to 745 Mb.

None of these things happen in a vacuum. Our dedicated group of site
checkers, led by webmaster John Berman, have worked hard, bringing all
of this to you. Over the past couple of months, all of our hosted sites
have been checked by our hard working Quality Assurance team, and those
of you with problems have been notified. We are currently working on a
project to migrate our linked pages on to JewishGen's servers. A survey
is now being conducted to move that project along.

All of this is done with the help of dedicated volunteers. None of us
is paid for this hard work. However, we all benefit >from your
JewishGen-erosity. If you have received any benefit >from this project
at all, or see the potential benefit, I ask you to strongly consider a
donation to further our work. All that computer space comes with a
price tag. You can make a credit card donation or send a check.
Instructions can be found at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/>.

Happy New Year to all of you and may 2001 bring you all you seek in your
family trees.

Could someone please tell me what the name Eva would be in

In Polish, the name is spelt "Ewa" and pronounced the same as we would say

Re: Plashet Cemetery, London #general

Amanda Jones <avjones@...>
 

A huge Jewish cemetery in the East End of London is
Plashet Cemetery, covering families who died in
Ilford, East Ham, Whitechapel, Dulwich, etc.
Actually, I think it's technically in the county of Essex.

A couple of things:

I doubt it is in Essex if it's in the East End, London goes a long way
now. It will therefore have been in Essex in the past, but now part of
Greater London.

Ilford, East Ham, and Whitechapel are all in East London, but Dulwich is a
long way away, it's in the south of London, pretty well due south of
central London. Maybe 7 miles south of the centre, and a fair haul from
Whitechapel et al.
