American Jewish Historical Societ Landsmanshaften Files Boxes 3&4 #general


Jerome Seligsohn <jselig1315@...>
 

In order to fit my decription of what is contained in the files listed above I
attempted to abbreviate it in an extreme manner and failed to satisfy the space
requiremnts of this message board and to be intelligible to the average viewer.

At the risk of making my personal interests over the concerns of a wide readership
I will hazard an estimate that I have uncovered a gold mine for those who will
make the trip to West 16th St in NYC to view what I so briefly have described.

The souvenir journals of landsmanshaften are rich in names, pictures and history.
The advertisements alone are worth the effort. These journals span a time frame
from the thirties to the fifties. They contain addresses in some journals. In
memoriam pages list the names of the dead.
To get an idea of what are in boxes 3&4 go to
www.jewishgen.org/databases/ajhav.htm
I cannot repeat the experience I had with boxes one and two where I personally
forwarded my descriptions to your e-mail addresses at your request. I ask that
some member put my description temporarily on their website and refer the
readership to this listing of descriptions.
