Re: Suwalki-Lomza Landsmen Journal #poland

Can you or anyone else confirm that the last issue of Landsmen was Volume 25, Numbers 1-2 Double Issue, January, 2017?  That seems to be the last one I received.  I have an email from Marlene dated January 5, 2018.  In it she said she was having technical difficulties with Windows 10 and that Volume 25, Numbers 3-4 would be coming to me, but would be delayed.  She said that she was hoping to get to the printer by the end of the month.  I don't believe I ever received that double issue.  Did it ever come out?  I got so busy with other matters that I never followed through on this!

Would you believe I was a Charter Member of the Suwalk-Lomza Interest Group and actually submitted several questions and two documents to the very first issue of Landsmen?  Marlene published my letter and one of the documents and really helped me get a handle on my wife's family from Suwalki Gubernia.  I owe her and Nicki Russler a lot.  It's hard to believe, but that was 30 years ago!

Thank you for your historical overview of how Landsmen and the Suwalk-Lomza Interest Group came into existence.
