Hello Jessica --

Sorry I've been so terribly out of touch...

I just wanted to encourage you to also post your interest in Fischbach to

1. Czernowitz Family Finder on ehpes : and the
2. JewishGen Family Finder at:

These are 2 great ways to get the word out on a permanent basis. Anyone who
later sees your interest can get in touch with you - or maybe you're already
listed on the JewishGen site and I just don't recognize your posting...

I've had long-lost cousins get in touch years and years after posting at
these 2 places.

Good luck!

the Jewish Museum's website gave me the first real hope I've ever had
that my Fischbach family line could be traced, and even that someone
might still be living from that line.

Edgar suggested a specific contact person at the museum, but also
suggested that I copy my request to the List, as possibly one of our
own list members may have contributed the documents I found on that
website. So, here goes, with my hope that someone "out there" can be of
