Keidan Vital Records Project
- Dear Fellow Keidaners:
I am pleased to report that a translator has already gone to work on
the Keidan vital records. We are very fortunate in having this
particular translator assigned to our records. My early contacts
with him leave me with the impression that he is not only a highly
professional translator but also a slavish perfectionist. A New York
City professional librarian, he is well honed in the Library of
Congress standards for Russian and Polish transliteration. In
addition to his credentials, his fees are affordable. I feel our
project is off to a fantastic start.
But we have a long way to go. To date 90% of our funds have come
from 10% of Keidan researchers. The donors have been generous and
have made it possible for translations to begin. It is my hope that
our translator will stay with this job until it is completed so that
the project will not suffer from disruption and too many cooks. If
the 90% of potential donors who have not yet participated rise to
the occasion, our project will be fully funded.
$100 contributors will receive the translated records as soon as
they are proofed and verified. All contributions are welcome and are
needed. Please don't be apathetic. Help keep the momentum going.
