I am forwarding this announcement from the Jewish Gen Discussion group as I
think some of you would be interested in learning more about this area of
Sierpc and surrounding communities.

> Dear friends,
> I am delighted to share wonderful news about the Yizkor Book for Sierpc,
> Poland. Translation of this 600-plus page volume is now complete and it is
> online in its entirety at
> http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Sierpc/Sierpc.html. 
> I am indebted to Dorothy Lipsky, who shared with me the project
> and editing of this extraordinary volume. We had the benefit of the
> masterful translations of Alex Weingarten (Hebrew
> sections) and Jerrold Landau (Yiddish sections), each a joy to work with.
> We are deeply indebted to Perry Rosenstein and the Puffin Foundation
> (Teaneck, NJ) for financial support. And of course we acknowledge the
> incomparable support of Lance Ackerfeld and his team in making our work
> available to all. If you have ancestral roots in Sierpc or nearby
> communities (e.g., Zuromin, Rypin, Raciaz,
> Plock) I encourage you to access the translation. The amount of detail and
> the quality of the writing are superb. Much of it is heartbreaking, but
> is illuminating.
