Re: Tips for Archival Research #galicia

Hello Karen,
I read with interest your discourse on how to act in an archive.
True, many researchers are blunt/impatient and generally boorish.
However, it is unfortunate that it is perceived as 'Jewish' behavior.

It is just behavior exhibited by anyone forgetting the basic rule - the
'Golden' rule:
'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you'.
It is not ethnic/religious it is universal.

Thank you for sharing your experiences.

badly on all of us and affect the experience we each have in doing
archival research;
