Yizkor Book Translations ProjectsYizkor Books
are a great source of Genealogical information. We have more than 70 Yizkor books at JewishGen, for towns in Bessarabia/Moldova
. 36 of them are from Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in Romania, vol.1 and 2, and all were translated. Some of other books were also translated, and published by JewishGen. Several books are in the process of translation, but many books have only Table of Content available.
The role of our Bessarabia/Moldova community is to change it, and to translate all the available books! There are two ways of translating Yizkor Books. One is to collect funds and hire a professional translator. The second way is to find a person with very good Hebrew and English and ask to translate a chapter or two. We, at JewishGen are using both of these methods.
A lot of original Yizkor Books in Hebrew, Yiddish are available at yizkor.nypl.org (at NY Public Library).
Please let our SIG know if you are interested in Yizkor book translation, maybe you can be a project leader for such work, or can translate a chapter or two from such books.
