Jerome Schatten's suggestion

Dear list members,

I too, have been thinking that it would be a good idea to have a list of all
the Czernowitz family names being researched by our list members.
Simon Kreindler's idea of a Czernowitz list members' map would allow
those of us born in Czernowitz, to find old neighbors.

Happy Chanukah to all,


P.S. Jerome, it is never too early or too late for good wishes.
