Ron Peeters asked how to display details of a list of Danzig records, which comes from our finding aid at At the top of that page, highlighted in yellow, are instructions for how to view scans of those records. Full transcriptions are not yet available and anyone who would like to volunteer to help with transcription/proofreading should please email me (the records are mostly written in Kurrent-style script).

Hi Logan, 

It's been some time that we have been in contact over the Gall documents on Hirsch Lewin PERLBACH. The many letters offered a lot of information about the descendants of Jacob LEVIN, children, grand-children, great-grandchildren. The Kurrent-style script didnot make it easy to read and translate them (many only partly) but I managed to find the towns where they lived and who they were married to.
I will gladly take a stab at the documents I mentioned and when I get more and more experienced to read Kurrent see what I can do with others in the collecion of the Danzig database.
