Please folks - this is probably only the second or third time in over 10 years that we have got side-tracked with this type of issue.  There is no need for it.

For EVERYONE, please take time to review the Mailing List Guidelines at http://www.sggee.org/communicate/mailing_list 

If you have any further comments about this thread, please address them to me personally and not to the Mailing List.

Thank you,

Jerry Frank
Assistant Mailing List Administrator

Not to mention that if the letter relates to YOUR ancestor, it's 
meaningful even if all
it contains is greetings, family news, etc.
I have a letter written by an ancestress in 1931. It's in Yiddish and 
I am very grateful
to the person who translated it for me...even though it added another 
brick to the wall
rather than breaking one down.
