Igumener Benevolent Association

contributed by Jerry Seligsohn

Thanks to the excellence and diligence of the YIVO librarians I was able to locate the following names found at the end of a very small bound booklet containing, in Yiddish, the constitution of the society.  I would suggest that from inferences from style, oxidation, its necessity for ordering the proceedings of a large group, and its complete reliance on Yiddish that it was printed no later than 1920.

I transliterated the great majority of the names. Where first names used the Hebrew spelling I translated into English [yussef to Joseph, yaakov to Jacob, yitzchok to Isaac]. All things commendable about this lists must be assigned to the YIVO librarians. All mistakes in transliteration must ascribed to the poor work of J Seligsohn.  I would suggest that where common names are clearly stated the work is fairly good. Where names appear to be atypical I would infer that I am at fault.
