Re: posting names & JGFF & FTJP #general

I support posting names and using JGFF & FTJP. I would request FTJP folks
to also list in JGFF, I have found many don't. It is helpful to use JGFF to
identify places of origin in connection with surnames. Also the address and
name of the poster saves on redundant messages whereas with FTJP one does
not know who is being written to.

Additionally, in support of posting names. There are always new people
reading the list who have not yet used JGFF and might discover links by
reading the lists. Similarly, there are some people with unusual surnames
or requests or same shtetls as I that I have been able to help by sharing
discoveries relevant to them that I make doing my own research. I make it a
point to jot down film and source numbers to share with fellow researchers
whom I know to be looking for a certain surname in a certain area. This way
we can really help one another, as Maria Krane noted.
