Thank you Volunteers
We salute our volunteers: our board members Judy Baston, Garri Regev, Russ Maurer, Harvey Levitt, Ann Brody, Hatte Blejer, David Ellis, Egle Bendikaite and Jody Tzucker. I salute Eden Joachim our volunteer treasurer whose contribution is greater than anyone can realize. We salute our District Research coordinators Ralph Salinger, Jody Tzucker, Ann Brody, Simon Zelman, Rhoda Miller, Judy Baston, Roy Ogus, Amy Wachs, Bonnie Birns, David Ellis and Russ Maurer. And we also give thanks and appreciation to Carol Hoffman, our most recent Past President, and contributor to LitvakSIG in so many ways.
Our volunteers hold multiple positions. Jody Tzucker is the President of LitvakSIG and the District Coordinator for Siauliai District and the Suwalki Guberniya. In addition to being the District Coordinator for Trakai, Amy is our Facebook guru and administers our page. Judy is our Secretary, diligent digest moderator and the District Coordinator for Lida and Oshmiany. Ann heads up Membership. Dorothy works with translations. Russ runs the Klaipeda District, is our Records and Translation Chair and chairs the exciting Vilnius Household Registers Project. There aren’t enough words to describe what Barry does: he’s our Webmaster and keeps us focused on what needs to be done. Eden, our excellent treasurer, manages the Internal Passports Special Project. We also are fortunate to have a number of volunteer translators. I salute them each who has given their time and expertise to help further research of our Litvak heritage.
