Chapter Comments

  • “[the Origins] chapter is a delight to read. The pictures and illustrations from magazines, in particular, are a wonderful addition and help set the context for the book. Presenting everything in chronological order–roughly speaking–is also an excellent approach and helps put the reader in the shoes of your ancestors.”
  • “Your theatre chapter is phenomenal.”
  • [On Hugo Gellert’s contributions] “Wisely, I think, you have let the work speak through itself with samples. It’s a lovely chapter.”
  • [On Louis Weinstock’s career] “No one but you could do it, and you have done a magnificent job.”

Early Comments

  • “Your research diligence is a big bravo.”
  • “This is so fascinating! Love It.”
