Jewish Keidan Vital Records Project
- Fellow Keidaners:
On February 8 Alan Brigish posted a message concerning the LitvakSIG
online donor form. He had discovered that the form "does not permit
one to enter a shtetl name under the Vital Records section." Alan's
post was in response to my February 2 message encouraging
contributions to the Keidan Vital Records Tranaslation effort.
I contacted Richard Hoffman, LitvakSIG treasurer, about the problem
Alan had identified. Richard told me the webmaster had already been
informed and he hoped the problem would soon be fixed. In the
meanwhile, donors are asked to fill in KEDAINIAI by hand after
printing out the donor form. We certainly don't need obstacles to
block the good intentions of contributors.
While I have not yet personally contacted those who have already
contributed to the project, I want to thank you all very much. The
treasurer told me that the fund-raising has been quite successful so
far. I really want to meet the goal.
Please go to http://www.jewishgen.org/litvak/donor.htm to help push
the project forward.
