Humor in the American Jewish Archives
The American Jewish Archives, based in Cincinnati, Ohio is an incredible resource for those investigatng their Jewish families. It houses a large collection of records submitted by families around the world. In many cases researchers can find a lot of very usefull information about their families.
In the example at the right, the family of Ben Burgunder can locate his birth, death and even something about his business, Burgunder & Ambach. When the record of his marriage is mentioned however, it may provide future generations with more information than they had hoped for. In the top part of the record it states that he married Carlin Friedman, and "never thereafter opened his mouth".
The records of this family are located in The Jews of the Americas.
