I have quite accidentally found one. Sometimes we don't know enough to
ask the right questions. I have been struggling the past few weeks to
fit a Jacob that I found in the 1920 census into my family tree. I had
just about given up when, quite by chance I read David Ziants reply to a
question and there right in front of me was the answer I had been
seeking. Jacob was my grandfather's uncle Yankel.
So thank you for a job well done and thank you for helping even when I
didn't know I needed it.
