A new project needs some money and perhaps some of my readers would be interested in supporting this effort:
Dear Brody & Galicia Researchers:
I wrote to you several times—most recently last month—about the new Brody Cemetery project. I thought I would update you on our progress! Thus far, we raised about 84% of our goal of $4,500 from 36 contributors out of over 300 Brody registered researchers.
As we are so close and believe you will help us make our goal, we went ahead—and contracted with our researcher in the Ukraine who has started the work. The time of the year to do this project is here and we would have missed the window of opportunity if we waited until we achieved 100% of our goal. We took a chance by relying on you donating to achieve our goal, so that we would not have to wait until the spring/summer of 2012 to do the project.
Samples of his initial project work are attached (reduced resolution).
We are so close to our $4,500 target but we need YOUR assistance to make the goal and photograph and index the metzevahs in the new Brody cemetery.
Please consider giving generously today so that the work may continue now!
Donations can be through our JewishGenerosity account on either Gesher Galicia's page:
Or on the Jewish Online Worldwide Burial Records (JOWBR) page:
Please contact me for questions. Those of you that would like to join the 2nd phase of indexing the photographed data, please contact me.
