Dear fellow jewishgenners,
As a longtime reader & poster on this listserve,
I want to gently remind you that there are a large
quantity of info files on this website. There are a
number of people out there who are posting
questions which have already been answered
in the archives or the infofiles. It would be a
good idea for the beginners out there to take
some time and copy/read the many infofiles
that exist.
With regard to the "searching for xx" posts,
it is a good idea to first work on the existing
JGFF research contacts, before doing your
"searching for xx" post. Not all the JGFF people
have e-mail, so you will need to make photocopies
and sending your letters to these people. I encourage
everyone to add/update their surname submissions to
the JGFF.
Lastly, when contacting people by e-mail, it is a very
good idea to add your name, e-mail address, and
city/state at the end of the letter. Whats the big deal?
You geographic location can sometimes assist in
improving the relevancy of the reply.
