 Yizkor Book Project  
 
 
Yizkor (memorial) books were written by groups of former residents and survivors from the same town to commemorate the towns or regions they came from. Most of these books are written in Hebrew or Yiddish.
 
The Pultusk Yizkor book, written in Yiddish, is available at the New York Public Library web site.
 
The Jewishgen Yizkor Book Project aims to unlock the precious information contained in these books by posting English translations of the books on the web. Read this Time Magazine feature about the project.
 
Our aim is to set up a project to finish translating into English the 712 pages of the Pultusk Yizkor Book for inclusion on the Jewishgen Yizkor Book website.
 
Stewart Bernstein has already initiated the project  and a partial translation is available on the web on the Jewishgen Pultusk Yizkor Book web page . We now are taking up the baton to finish the translation.

 Pultusk Archives on
 
 Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
 
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-Poland) is an important joint project between a group of genealogy volunteers and the Polish State Archives indexing Jewish vital records more than one hundred years old and posting the indices on the internet. 
 
If family tree researchers find their families in the indices, they can then order the records through JRI - Poland.
 
The founder of JRI-Poland, Stanley Diamond, is also co-ordinator of the Pultusk archives' section of the project. You can read about the formation of JRI-Poland here.
 
If you would like to make a donation to the Pultusk section of JRI-Poland, go the JRI-Poland website. Fill in the form naming Pultusk as the town to which you choose to give your donation.

 
 DNA Project
 
The Pultusk Yizkor Book (see above) is our priority. However we would also like to set up a Jewish Pultusk DNA project. Examples of such projects can be found by clicking here. Join the J-Pultusk discussion group above for more details.

 ShtetlLinks Project 
 
We are also seeking a volunteer(s) with experience of HTML or FrontPage or similar software to build a Pultusk web page on the Jewishgen ShtetlLinks web page. If wished, all work will be acknowledged on the website. 
 
If you or a relative can help (a connection with Pultusk is not obligatory!) either join the Jewish Pultusk discussion group above or contact the webmaster on the form below.
