JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen To All The People Who Make JewishGen Wonderful.......Thank you! #general


Joan, I've never asked you for genealogy info but I've read your
comments soo many times to other genners and genners in general. You
are so knowledgeable and helpful. I can't imagine anyone looking for
info and getting it not being grateful! But, that's what makes up horse
racing, as they say!!! Thanks for all your comments that I have been
privileged to read because of this fabulous web site. And, to all of
you out there, thank you for all you do and know!!

Sadly, it happens to too many of us. Recently a genner asked me about
Gelfand and Katz saying she had those two names in her I
sent what I had....never a reply, never yes we have a connection, no
we don't, absolutely nothing. I sent her another email checking to
see if she had received the answer to that either.

Will her lack of response stop me >from responding to others? Not at all.
Hope springs eternal and maybe one day someone to whom I send family info
will respond with a positive connection. Same applies to providing how-to
info or finding something for somebody. Do unto others...equals random
acts of genealogical kindness.

Requesting a read receipt is not always returned as there is the ability
to refuse to send one.

Happily, I can say that most other genners are courteous and thankful for
whatever help I've been able to provide. Not only that, but it has ended
up with some new email friends whom I hope to meet in Las Vegas as well as
other email friends throughout the world.
