From: ALPERN, MARY <ALPERN@uscb.edu>

My great-grandmother Sarah Alpern and her children. One of the children is holding a picture of their father Samuel who may have gone to America ahead of them, or maybe Sarah and the children went first, but that seems less likely. My grandfather Hymen (Chaim?) Alpern is the older boy, he was born in Bialystok in 1895, died in New York in 1967.

All Bialystok researchers are interested in the history of their ancestral
town and the environment in which our ancestors lived. We are fortunate to
have access to the two-volume work of Abram Shmul Hershberg -- Pinkos
Bialystok. Its nearly 900 pages provides by far the most detailed history of
the Jewish community in Bialystok starting in the seventeenth century and is
crammed with descriptive portraits of some 1,200 Jews living there. This
work has up to now been available only to those who could read Yiddish.

BIALYGen is sponsoring a JewishGen Yizkor Book project to translate the
entire two volumes from Yiddish to English. The detailed Tables of Contents
can be found at the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project website at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Bialystok/Bialystok.html.

I am happy to announce important progress on this project:

1) Translations have started and two sections of Chapters are now online.

2) Each Volume of Pinkos Bialystok has its own "Index of People." These
Chapters are now online:
Volume I People Index at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Bialystok/bia1_465.html
Volume II People Index at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Bialystok/bia2_369.html

As you will see, the People Indexes provides names of both noteworthy and
everyday Bialystokers who are part of the history of this very Jewish city.
We hope that this list of names and their page references are helpful to all
Bialystok researchers. Researchers who find references to their family may
want to help ensure that those sections of Pinkos Bialystok are translated
by contributing to this project.

Each Chapter of each Volume had been separated into Sections -- from 3 to 14
per Chapter. Researchers interested in contributing to this project can
identify the Chapter and/or Section to apply your donation. The process for
contributing and selecting the Section to apply your contribution can be
found at http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Pinkos.htm.

After contributing to the _Bialystok Yizkor Book_ project using the
JewishGen Translation Fund Donation Form at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23,
please contact Mark Halpern at bialystoker@comcast.net and identify the
Volume, Chapter, and Sections that your wish to support with your
contribution.

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Pinkos1.htm and
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Pinkos2.htm show the Tables of
Contents for each Volume. In addition, these BIALYGen webpages show the cost
to translate the two-volume work on as Section-by-Section basis. These two
webpages will be updated to show the status of fundraising. Once enough
funds have been donated to cover the cost of translation, the "Donations to
Date" column will show an amount equal to the "Cost to Translate." Once the
translation is complete and online, these columns will show "Complete."

Any contributions that are not directed to a specific Chapter or Section
will be applied by a committee of BIALYGen volunteers.

I would like to thank Michael Goldstein and Elisheva Malovicki for
translating the two People Indexes as well as Joyce Field and Lance
Ackerfeld for their management of the Yizkor Book project.

Please help us complete this translation project.
