Am I alone in, when reading an email, I look to see
where the email is coming from? . . . I often read the
signatures and think, yes, but where are you? Or am
I just being nosey?

You're not alone. . . Indeed, I never respond to e-mail
inquiries or listings in the Jewish Genealogy Family
Finder (JGFF) where the sender's/lister's name and location are not shown.
I have yet to hear a good reason why it is necessary
for anyone to give a location. And my person opinion,
is that it is just being snoopy. However, if you are
curious, ask. But please don't refuse to provide a
vital link about someone's family if they don't give a location.
After all, If a person said I am looking for an Obit for Jane
Doe >from 1966 in New York City, what significance does
the person's location have, other than providing what
time of day it is where they are?

Yehudah ben Shlomo,
