Dear Genners;

I have personally thanked all who took the time to reply about Nocher.
Everyone who has written has said the same thing basically: Nochem, which
make sense. I went back and looked and the last letter is definitely an
R, but possibly the writer misunderstood the name. So I am going to
make a correction in my Family Tree Maker notes.

This is such a wonderful, caring group of people!

I know what nochus means in Yiddish, but recently I found information
