Shalom,

February, a short month? We at the Yizkor Book Project have laughed in the
face of this short month and are pleased to announce that we have added and
updated a record number projects during it. Also during this month, a number
of new, exciting projects have begun to brew and, hopefully, in my next
report I'll be able to provide more details of them.

This month I would like to send out a sincere salute a wonderful group of
people who are currently volunteering their free time in translating Hebrew
and Yiddish into English. Their uniqueness is that each of them has worked
on quite a number of projects and helped their advance for the benefit of us
all. So my humble thanks go out this month to: Ruthy Erez, Yocheved
Klausner, Sara Mages, Thia Persoff, Pamela Russ, Francine Shapiro & Esther
Snyder.

While we're talking about translations, if any of you out there are
interested in helping to finance the translation of the 47 page section on
Lviv (Lemberg) >from Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities, Poland), please contact me privately. In general, if you have
interest in financing any of the articles >from these pinkasim
(encyclopedias) I'd be happy to hear >from you and I'll explain how it can be
done.

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

February, a short month? We at the Yizkor Book Project have laughed in the
face of this short month and are pleased to announce that we have added and
updated a record number projects during it. Also during this month, a number
of new, exciting projects have begun to brew and, hopefully, in my next
report I'll be able to provide more details of them.

This month I would like to send out a sincere salute a wonderful group of
people who are currently volunteering their free time in translating Hebrew
and Yiddish into English. Their uniqueness is that each of them has worked
on quite a number of projects and helped their advance for the benefit of us
all. So my humble thanks go out this month to: Ruthy Erez, Yocheved
Klausner, Sara Mages, Thia Persoff, Pamela Russ, Francine Shapiro & Esther Snyder.

While we're talking about translations, if any of you out there are
interested in helping to finance the translation of the 47 page section on
Lviv (Lemberg) >from Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities, Poland), please contact me privately. In general, if you have
interest in financing any of the articles >from these pinkasim
(encyclopedias) I'd be happy to hear >from you and I'll explain how it can be done.

Now to the February figures. During this last month we have added these 4
new projects:

for individuals >from throughout Belarus, some of whom are Jewish. At the
top of the page is a button for "English" (second button >from the left).
The article, in English, is entitled, " Remember his name..." This topic
is about 58 pages in length.

In a sidebar of this site is also a Russian language " Database (DB) of
Soviet POWs who died in Camp Zeithain, obtained by processing various documents
containing often a different levelinformation." For this you would need to use
a translation tool for English.

Also, in a sidebar, is a searchable site for:
"Lists of prisoners of war buried in the cemetery Hammelburg" from
Belarus. You will also need a translation tool in order to convert to
English.

In the sidebar is also an audio archive for those who understand
Russian.

When the burial site location is known, an old low-tech trick is to leave a
handwritten note in a bottle for people who visit the grave. The more active
approach might be to contact the cemetery office and so on. Given that fact
that the name is relatively rare, I would contact every LICHTENSTERN found

Shalom,

February, a short month? We at the Yizkor Book Project have laughed in the
face of this short month and are pleased to announce that we have added and
updated a record number projects during it. Also during this month, a number
of new, exciting projects have begun to brew and, hopefully, in my next
report I'll be able to provide more details of them.

This month I would like to send out a sincere salute a wonderful group of
people who are currently volunteering their free time in translating Hebrew
and Yiddish into English. Their uniqueness is that each of them has worked
on quite a number of projects and helped their advance for the benefit of us
all. So my humble thanks go out this month to: Ruthy Erez, Yocheved
Klausner, Sara Mages, Thia Persoff, Pamela Russ, Francine Shapiro & Esther
Snyder.

While we're talking about translations, if any of you out there are
interested in helping to finance the translation of the 47 page section on
Lviv (Lemberg) >from Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities, Poland), please contact me privately. In general, if you have
interest in financing any of the articles >from these pinkasim
(encyclopedias) I'd be happy to hear >from you and I'll explain how it can be
done.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Yizkor Book Project, February 2011 #general

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

February, a short month? We at the Yizkor Book Project have laughed in the
face of this short month and are pleased to announce that we have added and
updated a record number projects during it. Also during this month, a number
of new, exciting projects have begun to brew and, hopefully, in my next
report I'll be able to provide more details of them.

This month I would like to send out a sincere salute a wonderful group of
people who are currently volunteering their free time in translating Hebrew
and Yiddish into English. Their uniqueness is that each of them has worked
on quite a number of projects and helped their advance for the benefit of us
all. So my humble thanks go out this month to: Ruthy Erez, Yocheved
Klausner, Sara Mages, Thia Persoff, Pamela Russ, Francine Shapiro & Esther
Snyder.

While we're talking about translations, if any of you out there are
interested in helping to finance the translation of the 47 page section on
Lviv (Lemberg) >from Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities, Poland), please contact me privately. In general, if you have
interest in financing any of the articles >from these pinkasim
(encyclopedias) I'd be happy to hear >from you and I'll explain how it can be
done.

Now to the February figures. During this last month we have added these 4
