The YIVO archivists have a monumental task ahead of them. They must painstakingly go through the mainly unorganized papers of defunct landsmanshaften societies and make order of a mass of documents. This is the hard work. Researchers can then access these files to discover the history of benevolent societies and through these societies the story of the lives lead by our ancestors in this country. We cannot thank these archivists sufficiently for their efforts.
Two lists of the Delatizer [Delatcze] Aid Benevolent Society will be presented herein. The first list were the dues paying members as of 1971. The second list, an alphabetized list complete with partial addresses, were dues paying members as of 1951. Complete addresses of the 1951 lists will be found in the YIVO Landsmanshaften boxed files.
We advise the readers that neither YIVO nor this author can provide a follow up to these lists. It is suggested that the reader pursue the classic tools of the researcher.
