    IGRA (Israel Genealogy Research Association) has posted a new article
    on its website, "Ada Holtzman -- on the third memorial of her passing"
    by Ellen Stepak.

    In this article, Ellen Stepak writes about Ada Holtzman's tremendous
    influence on Jewish genealogy. The article includes information about
    Ada's website, www.zchor.org, which is still in operation, the many
    projects she was involved including the largest one on Gombin/Gabin
    and a five-volume set of books on Jewish soldiers fighting in the
    Polish army which she edited, among others.

    Since 1995, Ellen Stepak has been actively researching her family's
    roots, with ancestors from five modern-day countries. Ellen has
    written several articles on topics related to her research, and
    translating material from Hebrew to English. She has published three
    family history books: We Were All Klutzes, about the Klots (and Kling)
    families of Lithuania; The Werthans of Rotenburg an der Fulda; and The
    Brenn Family of Pinsk.
