Dear Czernowitz group:

As of mid-day December 26, the number of entries transcribed stands
at an unbelievable 15,804 (considering we stood at 12,000 just 10
days ago)! We are making great progress especially since some of the
Dachau database transcribers joined the team. Our greatest
appreciation goes to all project volunteers.

Enjoy the final night of Chanukah,
