Janet, I forwarded your note to a friend of mine who is co-founder and still
active in the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Stamford (Connecticut,
USA) on the chance that he might know someone who could do the translations.
He responded as follows, referring to this Sunday's monthly meeting and

Hi Bernie: Hebrew translation of this kind requires more than certainly I am
capable. The reason: its Hebrew script and not print. Perhaps we could make
an announcement at Sunday's mtg. & ask anyone who is interested to see you
after its conclusion. Bring a printout of the request. I am really fascinated

by this project and only wish that I could do it. You might also suggest to
the sender that the town she lists in the e-mail as Schwarza is more possibly

Schwersenz. This town is in Prussian Posen about 15 miles west of the capital

city of Posen (since 1921 Poznan). My maternal ancestors came >from a town not

too far away. Bernard Baruch's father was born in that town. Irwin
