Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

Feb. 1, 2010

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: help with poor penmanship

I am seeking help with two Yiddish handwritten letters which are difficult 
to read because of their poor penmanship. Both letters are addressed to 
the same person. One is dated October 11, 1928 and originates from Evarts, 
Kentucky and the other letter originating from Onorkov (Poland?) is dated 
September 23, 1966. I have scanned the two letters and can provide them in 
pdf format. It would be helpful if they can be transcribed into 
typewritten form since I am fairly fluent in Yiddish and do not need for 
the letters to be translated.

With warm regards,

Sasha Englard <englard at aecom.yu.edu>
