Hello, Jewishgenners. I am sure I am not the only one who has had some success in
obtaining records and tracing family trees, while encountering the fact that in
other cases almost no records exist anymore. I don't like to think of it as the
"end of the road," but realistically speaking when we find that archives have no
metric or vital records, or even censuses on families, we're left with whatever we
have >from anecdotes or bits and pieces here and there that may or may not be
accurate. I think, however, that given the way history has gone over the past 1-2
centuries we should find ways of finding satisfaction in whatever we have indeed
discovered in our genealogy research and family tree work.
The cup is not half empty but half full .
