I thought I would pose this question to the group in the hope that
someone has done the research or may have had the knowledge passed down.
The answer may be helpful in pinpointing specific shtetls that our
ancestors came from.
Generally, did landsmanshaften really have prior residency requirements
for membership? Or might it have been possible for an outsider to join
for the social aspects of the club and choice burial plots?
Any comment would be appreciated.
