Yizkor Book Project Report - July 2008

During July 2008 the Yizkor Book Project added two new books, four new entries, and 13 updates. All of this month's additions have been flagged here to make it easy for researchers to find them. In addition, all translations are categorized by regions, communities, miscellaneous, and other languages.

There is also a Yizkor Book Database, a master bibliographic database of most published yizkor books and other books written about particular towns or areas.


New Books:
  • Rymanow, Poland: necrology donated by Yad Vashem
  • Telsiai, Lithuania: necrology donated by Yad Vashem
New Entries:


Updates:


  • Bedzin, Poland
  • Bialystok, Poland
  • Brzeziny, Poland
  • Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland
  • Dusetos, Lithuania
  • Dalusz, Ukraine
  • Pinsk, Belarus
  • Radzyn Podlaski, Poland
  • Rokiskis, Lithuania
  • Sanok, Poland
  • Svencionys, Lithuania
  • The Last of the Freiburgs
  • Vas, Hungary
As always, it is impossible to properly express our praise and gratiutude to all the donors, volunteers and  project coordinators of yizkor book translations and Yizkor Books Projects - without whom this would not be possible. If you appreciate the results of the work by these volunteers, please help them by donating to the projects listed here as well as to the JewishGen General Fund, listed here.


Please contact me personally if you would like to start a new translation project or donate funds for the translation of an article of your ancestral town in the Pinkas HaKehillot volumes.

Shabat Shalom,

Joyce
