Re: Donations to SIGs and Jewishgen #belarus

jeanne4_98nospam@yahoo.com <jeanne4_98@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have read with interest the comments about the need to donate money.
Obviously all the SIGs and Jewishgen itself need money to operate. The
SIGs and JewishGen run on both money and volunteerism. BOTH are needed
to continue accumulating and disseminating this wonderful body of
knowledge.

I have been offended more than once by well-meaning but boorish people
who have written me personally to suggest that I donate money when I've
recounted some small success due at least in part to what I've learned
here. I am also offended that some SIGs don't want donations of less
than $100. Some of us can't afford to give that much at once. Why
aren't smaller donations welcome?

In my own case, I "retired" some twenty years early due to a chronic
illness. I didn't have the time I expected to build a retirement nest
egg. My means are small, but my heart is big and I have the time to
donate when I am well enough. No doubt I am not the only one.

It seems to me that if we all donate what we can--both monetarily and
otherwise--that this project will continue to flourish. And may I
suggest that it is most improper for anyone to write another personally
to tell that that person to donate money at a particular time.

Thanks for letting me have my say.

Dear Kenneth,
I do not remember the details of your message of some time ago. But I
remember that it was connected with Geseke.

Meanwhile I have received a lot of material >from the Geseke Stadtarchiv.
Including an interesting chapter on the Geseke Synagoge (including a
beautiful drawing of the ancient building, drawn >from 'memory') & Jewish
school. The chapter contains lists of names, of 1854 and of 1935.

In the 1854 list appears: KRONENBERG, Bernhard.

In the 1935 list there appear:

Kronenberg, Ferdinand (56), V=F6lmeder Str. 7, Kaufmann
Kronenberg, Werner (26), Hellweg 18, Kaufmann

A Jewish teacher Salomon Kronenberg is mentioned (1867).

Best wishes, Zeev Raphael, Haifa <zeevr@aerodyne.technion.ac.il>
