Chevra Bnai Jacob Anshei Sherishow

(Shereshov, Pruzhany uezd, Grodno gubernia)

Contributed by Jerry Seligsohn

From the membership ledger one may safely infer that this is a burial society.  However as with most landsmanshaften one discovers that there is also an active social and cultural life going on.  This researcher does not correct name spellings and suggests to the readership that they resist the temptation unless they think they have discovered an ancestor, and are willing to assume that the secretary of the organization has made an honest mistake.  From the addresses one can infer that this ledger's dues statements were from the final decades of the twentieth century when the move to the suburbs were well on the way.
