Announcement from Joyce Field #austria-czech


Joyce Field
 

After over 12 years of association with JewishGen, I will be leaving on
December 31. I have learned much >from my involvement with this great
organization and I will miss all the wonderful friends I have met. I am
thankful most of all for the encouragement I received >from Susan King to
start new programs and grateful to Joanna Fletcher and Carol Skydell for
their constant help and friendship. I am thankful for the great staff I have
worked with: Lance Ackerfeld, Osnat Ramaty, Max Heffler, Mike Kalt, and
Nolan Altman. Without them we could not have seen the Yizkor Book,
Holocaust Database, and JOWBR projects grow. Working with the SIGS, the
JGSs, and all the great volunteers on translation and data entry projects as
well as the colleagues at USHMM and Yad Vashem was always a personally
enjoyable and an enriching experience.

I wish all of you good health and success in your genealogical work. I hope
we will keep in touch to share future successes.

I was very sorry to read the announcement that Joyce Field will be leaving on
December after over 12 years of association with JewishGen. Joyce is heading the
Yizkor book project and was very helpful to me ever since I submitted my very first
translation for the Kurenets Yizkor book. I had no prior experience, yet Joyce took
the translations while encouraging me to do a better job. She would read every
word and demand a better editing, more coherent text, and higher quality scans of
pictures >from the original books. As timed passed, I submitted to Joyce
translations of other Yizkor books done privately by some Israelis. Some
translations were done by survivors who had little knowledge of the English
language but big wish to see the books online. Joyce was kind, finding editors to
work with them. Her remarkable memory for details helped reunite cousins after more
then 60 years. Descendants of Chaim of Volozhin who were under the impression that
they are the only survivors. Thank you so much Joyce,
Eilat Gordin Levitan

Dear Joyce,

I think that even though most of us have not met you - we feel that
we know you and your name has become a household name in the line of
family research.

You have been a major assistant to us in the genealogical research
and we thank you for all that you have done, giving of your time so
selflessly.

All the best
regards
