SHEIN family from LIthuania #general

Dr. Trevor Waner
 

I am looking for any information about the SHEIN family >from Lithuania. The
most famous of this family was RABBI SHLOMO YAAKOV SHEIN who wrote many
books and among them Avnei Shais, in memory of his son Abba. He and his
wife brought up their nine grandchildren. I am looking for anyone who
might have information about them. Their names are: Chaim, Ester, Laser,
Mira, Moshe Hillel, Yichiel, Banius, Dora and Bluma.

Looking forward to your replies,

Trevor Waner

This picture was taken in the 1950s in Hollywood at a 20th Century Fox sales
meeting. My father and uncle are on either side of this woman, who I think is
a movie actress. Anyone recognize her?

I have received many responses to my posting concerning whether it is necessary

good arguments that in some situations that it could save some time. I hope to

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,
U.S.A.
That example makes no difference at all, but if you were seeking information
that might be provided by sending you to a local resource, it would be
critical to know if you *are* local to the resource. This might be a Family
History Center, for instance, which is not available in Israel as I
understand it, or a simple 1-800 phone number, which generally does not work
if dialed >from outside North America.

Sometimes it is merely a matter of recognizing that you, the requestor of
information, are near to a resource known to the person responding.

Beside the fact that the rules of this forum call for including one's
location in a sign-off, I find it only common courtesy to do so.
