-===== JewishGen KehilaLink for Yurevichi ​===== +
-One of the goals of this project is to create a Yurevichi memorial page as a JewishGen KehilaLink. ​ An initial version is expected to be published by December 2013.  It will be available on the JewishGen website at: http://​kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/​yurevichi/​ +

-==== How it Works ==== +
- +
-Creating and editing these pages will take place on this yurevichi.org website, as an online wiki is ideal for such collaborative document creation. ​ For technical and security reasons, this editing and collaboration process occurs on a computer server that is separate from JewishGen'​s network and systems. +
- +
-Versions of this website will be pushed periodically to the JewishGen website to become read-only instances. We expect these read-only instances to look identical to the pages on yurevichi.org.+
