Yizkor Book Project, November 2014 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

We of the Yizkor Book Project continue to make great advances in the
translations of quite a few books each passing month but the task of
translating all the books that exist is definitely daunting and never
ending. Thankfully, we are blessed with a handful of volunteer translators
but it is blatantly clear that to translate the bulk of the Yizkor books,
funds need to be raised to enable for the engagement of professional
translators.

As in most months, in November I received requests >from people wishing to
know what the cost we be to translate a particular book and I endeavored to
send them back an estimate. I am quite sure that the people asking for these
estimates fell off their chairs on receiving my cost estimate for the
translation. Yes, whilst the Yizkor Books are a wonderful source of
knowledge on the communities that were destroyed and our mission is to allow
a wide as possible community of people to read them online, the cost of
their translation is considerable. For example, a ball park estimate for
translating a 200 page book would be anywhere in the order of $5,000 -
$7,000. Now as it would usually be difficult for an individual to cover
such a cost, we set up Translation Funds so that people with interest in
a community can share the financial burden of translating these books.
At present, we have around 70 such funds and I invite you to look at
the list (and to donate if you are able) at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/PL.asp?c=23
On the other hand, if your community isn't yet represented and you
would like to know what needs to be done to set up such a fund,
please contact me and I will be happy to explain.

Now to facts and figures for November.

JewishGen Education 2015 #latinamerica

We are delighted to offer 'genners four courses in the first quarter of
2015.

1. Research Your Roots on JewishGen Jan 1-29
2. Beginning Jewish Genealogy in the U.S. Jan 16-Feb 10
3. Complex Genealogical Research in the U.S. March 2-30

These 3 courses focus on your immigrant ancestors and include online
text lessons and our unique FORUM, our personal mentoring program,
where students are encouraged to post one branch, set goals for their
research and work interactively with the instructor to research that
branch.

Consider the beginning course for organization and basic research
skills (census, vital records, manifests) then move on to the Complex
U.S. course (which covers naturalization, military and governmental
records, and local archival research)

The third Course, Research Your Roots begins with an Introduction
to Jewish History, Culture and Naming Patterns, moves into Finding
your Shtetl, explores the JewishGen Researcher and
Country Databases, Jewish Records Indexing (JRI-P), and includes
practical hints on translation, finding a researcher and other
advanced topics. This course creates a bridge between the American
Family data and those left behind in Europe, between records available
on JewishGen and related sites and hiring a researcher. If you are an
experienced researcher, familiar with everything JewishGen has to
offer, and/or have already found your family in European databases,
this course would be too elementary (consider the next Independent
Study class).

4. Basic 1: Search Strategies for Genealogy Jan 2-16
this two week class emphasizes efficient use of the Internet for
genealogy. The class is taught in a forum setting open 24/7 with daily
tasks and assignments
that should take no more than an hour a day. Each lesson includes
illustrative quick search problems using Google. This class is free to
Value Added members of JewishGen who have donated $100 to the General
Fund in the last 12 months.

We strongly encourage you to look at the course details, instructor's
credentials and student requirements (time, fee, prerequisites) on
www.jewishgen.org/education. Course Registration opens two or three weeks
before the course start date. If, after reviewing the education page,
you have some questions, please email

experienced researcher, familiar with everything JewishGen has to
offer, and/or have already found your family in European databases,
this course would be too elementary (consider the next Independent
Study class).

4. Basic 1: Search Strategies for Genealogy Jan 2-16
this two week class emphasizes efficient use of the Internet for
genealogy. The class is taught in a forum setting open 24/7 with daily
tasks and assignments
that should take no more than an hour a day. Each lesson includes
illustrative quick search problems using Google. This class is free to
Value Added members of JewishGen who have donated $100 to the General
Fund in the last 12 months.

We strongly encourage you to look at the course details, instructor's
credentials and student requirements (time, fee, prerequisites) on
www.jewishgen.org/education. Course Registration opens two or three weeks
before the course start date. If, after reviewing the education page,
you have some questions, please email
JewishGen-Education@lyris.JewishGen.org.
