Wisoko-Litower Brotherly Benevolent Society

(Vysokoe, Latitude: 5222' Longitude: 2322')

contributed by Jerry Seligsohn

I have catalogued this society as a volunteer working for YIVO which is a branch of the Center of Jewish History.  The records consists of dues books from the late 1980's as well as incorporation papers from 1902 as well as a Washington, Brooklyn cemetery from 1908.  There are no records in between.  It is hoped that some reader will be kind enough to contact me at JSelig3460@aol.com if you are able to photocopy a list of names from an earlier date, preferably from an Anniversary celebration booklet so that we might add those names to this list.  The following names were taken from a 1988 dues book.  Please forgive misspellings as often we guessed at the handwriting.
