A recent message >from a GerSIG subscriber prompts me to post this
reminder to all:
Every message posted to GerSIG and other email lists hosted by
JewishGen is saved in the SIG archives.
The SIG archives are easily searched using the search engine at:
That link appears at the end of every GerSIG list message your receive.
You can also request copies of past GerSIG list messages for a specific date
or date range. For example, all GerSIG list messages for April 1,
2012 or April 1-30, 2012
That is done by email to: Lyris@lyris.jewishgen.org
