Yizkor Book Project Report - August 2008

In August 2008 the Yizkor added one new book, two new entries, and updates to nine books.  All additions have been flagged at here to make it easy for researchers to find them.

New Books
New Entries

Updates

Also remember to check the Yizkor Book Database,a master bibliographic database of most published yizkor books and other books written about particular towns or areas. Another valuable resource is the necrology index, an index of the names of persons in the necrologies--the lists of Holocaust martyrs--published in our translated yizkor books.  The necrologies are also searchable at the Holocaust Database, located here.

Please contact me if you are interested in starting a new yizkor book translation project.  Check the Yizkor book Database to see if a book has been written about your ancestral town and also check the listings of articles in the Pinkas HaKehillot to see if there is an article about your town. These books are listed under "Regions."



Shana tova to all the JewishGen family.
