Yizkor Book Project, October 2015 #scandinavia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As always, there is quite a lot to tell you about the activities of the
Yizkor Book Project over the past month. To begin with, no less than three
books were published by our very own Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project
and they are:

- "Memorial Book of Bolekhov " (Bolekhiv, Ukraine)
- "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings; Memorial Book and Testimony" (Rokytne,
Ukraine)
- "The 51st Brigade; The History of the Jewish Partisan Group >from the
Slonim Ghetto (Slonim, Belarus)

To say that this is a remarkable achievement is a definite understatement
and I do sincerely thank Joel Alpert and his dedicated volunteer team for
preparing these and a grand total of 42 books that have already been brought
to print. Please be aware that apart >from these books being printed as hard
copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over October.

During this last month we have added in 3 new projects:

- Davyd-Haradok, Belarus (David Horodoker Memorial book)

Yizkor Book Project, October 2015 #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As always, there is quite a lot to tell you about the activities of the
Yizkor Book Project over the past month. To begin with, no less than three
books were published by our very own Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project
and they are:

- "Memorial Book of Bolekhov " (Bolekhiv, Ukraine)
- "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings; Memorial Book and Testimony" (Rokytne,
Ukraine)
- "The 51st Brigade; The History of the Jewish Partisan Group >from the
Slonim Ghetto (Slonim, Belarus)

To say that this is a remarkable achievement is a definite understatement
and I do sincerely thank Joel Alpert and his dedicated volunteer team for
preparing these and a grand total of 42 books that have already been brought
to print. Please be aware that apart >from these books being printed as hard
copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over October.

During this last month we have added in 3 new projects:

- Davyd-Haradok, Belarus (David Horodoker Memorial book)

Shalom,

As always, there is quite a lot to tell you about the activities of the
Yizkor Book Project over the past month. To begin with, no less than three
books were published by our very own Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project
and they are:

- "Memorial Book of Bolekhov " (Bolekhiv, Ukraine)
- "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings; Memorial Book and Testimony" (Rokytne,
Ukraine)
- "The 51st Brigade; The History of the Jewish Partisan Group >from the
Slonim Ghetto (Slonim, Belarus)

To say that this is a remarkable achievement is a definite understatement
and I do sincerely thank Joel Alpert and his dedicated volunteer team for
preparing these and a grand total of 42 books that have already been brought
to print. Please be aware that apart >from these books being printed as hard
copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over October.

During this last month we have added in 3 new projects:

- Davyd-Haradok, Belarus (David Horodoker Memorial book)

Dear researchers,

summer to Seattle.

discoveries. This is how it worked for me starting >from the conference in
Philadelphia in 2009... the conference is a place to find out a little bit
more about your family, to get a new trick or new method to get a name of
unknown relative or his business, and more...

conferences, please take a look:

Yizkor Book Project, October 2015 #yiddish

bounce-3041250-772983@...
 

Shalom,

As always, there is quite a lot to tell you about the activities of the
Yizkor Book Project over the past month. To begin with, no less than three
books were published by our very own Yizkor Books in Print (YBIP) Project
and they are:

- "Memorial Book of Bolekhov " (Bolekhiv, Ukraine)
- "Rokitno-Wolyn and Surroundings; Memorial Book and Testimony" (Rokytne,
Ukraine)
- "The 51st Brigade; The History of the Jewish Partisan Group >from the
Slonim Ghetto (Slonim, Belarus)

To say that this is a remarkable achievement is a definite understatement
and I do sincerely thank Joel Alpert and his dedicated volunteer team for
preparing these and a grand total of 42 books that have already been brought
to print. Please be aware that apart >from these books being printed as hard
copies, the books themselves are still freely available in the Yizkor Book
site, including English books that were presented to us to be published. For
instance, the "51st Brigade" book noted above is also listed and available
in the Yizkor Book Index: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

More and more are people realizing that to facilitate the translation of a
particular Yizkor Book, the recommended way is to set up a JewishGen
Translations Fund to pay for the professional translation of the book. The
fund enables those people interested in the book >from a particular
community to donate towards the common goal of having it translated and for
US citizens, the donations to JewishGen are tax deductible.

During October, a further new Translations Fund was set up for the Biala
Podlaska (Poland) Yizkor Book and I do invite people with connections to
this community or any of the other community book listed in our
JewishGen-erosity
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
to help support these important projects financially for the benefit of
many, now and for generations to come.

And now for the changes and additions that were carried out in the Yizkor
Book Project over October.

During this last month we have added in 3 new projects:

- Davyd-Haradok, Belarus (David Horodoker Memorial book)
