Possible Book Sources #yizkorbooks


Susannah R. Juni <sjuni@...>
 

I have not tried searching for Yizkor books at the sources listed below,
but if anyone has any luck, please let me know. If either of them works,
I'll add a link to the Yizkor Book Project's Retail List. The following
info was sent to me by Amazon.com in response to a query I'd sent them. It
could be a great source. Has anyone tried EBay.com for Yizkor books yet?
(Don't laugh.) I know people who have found other rare foreign language
books there.

If anyone has a moment to try these sources, please let us know if thye work.

Thanks.

I would recommend searching for this title on Bibliofind
(http://www.bibliofind.com). Bibliofind lists 10 million used,
antiquarian and rare books offered for sale by thousands of book
sellers around the world, so it's quite possible that you'll find the
book listed there. Their listings are updated frequently, so I
encourage you to check back periodically if you don't find the book
you're seeking right away.

You might also try browsing the book categories on Amazon.com Auctions
(http://auctions.amazon.com) to see if anyone is selling a copy of
this book there.

There were 3 listed on ebay in the completed items and 1 in active
items, spelled Yiskor. ebay is a good place to keep an eye on!

When seeking a Yizkor book for my mother's village of Bielsk Podlaski I sent
e-mail requests to the retail establishments listed on the Jewish Gen site. Sal
Kluger (salkluger@...) responded that he would do a search and in a few
months I heard >from him that he had located a copy which I now have in my
possession.

Yes. This was sent in on another list with a summation of which ones were
currently available with the latest bid on each. But I don't think that
JewishGen allows this kind of message because of its commercial content (I'd
be happy to be corrected in this statement).

There are a couple of sites that search all the auction sites by subject, and
that might be a good strategy to use in locating currently available yizkor
books. EBay is fighting them in court but we could probably use that strategy
until the case is resolved.
