General Information

[To the beginning of the document]

Societies and Clubs

These societies are small non-profit societies with tight budgets and staffed largely by elderly volunteers. Always include return postage (which is much higher in Europe than here--an airmail letter from Germany to the US costs DM 3, or $2), and, if the question is likely to be time-consuming, an appropriate donation. Please note that personal checks are nearly useless. Any money order bought at your supermarket will do, though not postal money orders, which are valid only in the U.S.
