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

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text to victor.bers at yale.edu 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: Seeking Literary Heir or Executor

Tayere Fraynt:

I am working on a translation of Selected Poems of the Yiddish poet known
as Rosa Nevadovska and am seeking her literary heir or executor. The poet
was born in Bialystok and immigrated to the U.S. In 1928. She died in 1971
in Brooklyn. Her sister Sima Kaplan, who donated Nevadovska's archive to
YIVO, died in 1978. The poet's full name was Zelda Rosa and she was also
known for a time as Zelda Troulman (married name).

I greatly appreciate any help you can give.
