JewishGen Yizkor Book Research Division Meeting #yizkorbooks


Max Heffler
 

Hindsight being 20-20 I forgot to share at yesterday's JewishGen Yizkor Book Research Division Meeting two benefits I have experienced from volunteering:

 

1.       When I started coordinating the translation of the Lita Yizkor Book and worked with a volunteer translator, I later found out his wife was my 5th cousins and we have been collaborating for well over a decade

 

2.       When the conference was in Warsaw, I got to visit some ancestral towns. One of those towns had a Yizkor book, Serock, and my grandmother’s siblings’ families had written stories documenting their experiences during the war
