Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements
August 15, 2012
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: Lily Bes

I am seeking biographical and bibliographic information on the Yiddish
poet Lily Bes. She published several poems in “Frayhayt” in early
1929. She does not appear in any of the lexicons, and I have no
further biographical information about her.I realise this makes it
unlikely that I will be able to locate further information, but figure
it is worth a try. You never know…

I am also seeking circulation data and information about the
readership of “Frayhayt” newspaper in 1928 and/or early 1929. I
appreciate any information you can share.

Thank you,
