I don't believe this is absolutely true. I use Netscape exclusively and
and

Eudora and I have had quite a few viruses. On the last automatic live
update scan, 6 viruses were found, and they have been coming through
pretty

often in the last two weeks. Fortunately, Norton 2002 has picked them up
and they have been quartined.

Dear all,
By now you probably heard of the BUGBEAR virus/worm (also known as
Tanatos). It's no hoax, it's VERY SERIOUS. Please visit McAfee's site
to learn more about it and how to protect your computer:
http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_99728.htm
Read the text with care since it explains the many forms this virus
can take. It's not a stealth virus, it disguises itself creating
subject lines which induce the receiver to open the email message to
which this pest has been attached (this is why Faith thought the
message came >from H-SIG). It also changes the filename constantly, so
you may not perceive that a virus is being sent to you.
The "vaccine" is already available on both the Symantec (Norton) and
McAfee sites.
Also NEVER forget: the BEST protection against virii remains frequent
BACKUPing, DAILY if possible.
The best, regards
Tom
Moderator VK: Please heed Tom's advice. The Bugbear is NOT a hoax.
This is a real problem that attacks those who use certain MS products and

protect your system

I have been searching for some time for my grandfather's three sisters and
have just found out that his niece, Bertha Gop(p) arrived through Ellis
Island May 30, 1917. The shipping manifest states that she was going to herAunt, Gutel Meyerowitz of 35 Wall Street, Boston, Mass.

This is the first time that I have "found" one of his three sisters,
although I believe that all three went to Boston. The 6 brothers went to
South Africa and it was only through the ALD that I discovered that there
were also 3 sisters. Their parents (my great grandparents) were Shmuel
Beniamin ben Abram Gop and Sora Rokhel bat Abram David Friedland. I have
had some research done in Vilnuis with amazing success!

Gutel Gop was born in Vilijampole, Kaunas on 29th December 1873. She may
also have had a son Borukh, who was born in Kaunas in 1896, before her
marriage to Mr ? Meyerowitz. I know nothing further about Gutel's family
in Boston, or even when she left Lithuania.

I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction,
perhaps has access to a Boston census 1910 or 1920?

Thanks in advance

I have been searching for some time for my grandfather's three sisters and
have just found out that his niece, Bertha Gop(p) arrived through Ellis
Island May 30, 1917. The shipping manifest states that she was going to herAunt, Gutel Meyerowitz of 35 Wall Street, Boston, Mass.

This is the first time that I have "found" one of his three sisters,
although I believe that all three went to Boston. The 6 brothers went to
South Africa and it was only through the ALD that I discovered that there
were also 3 sisters. Their parents (my great grandparents) were Shmuel
Beniamin ben Abram Gop and Sora Rokhel bat Abram David Friedland. I have
