I was looking for documentation today. I contacted my old, very old Orthodox Congregation in New Orleans. I want to know if they had a record of my Confirmation. Their reply. Their records don't go back that far. Ouch ! That hurts. If they had said
that we lost your records in Katrina, I would have felt so much better. But now I feel like an antique. I keep my IRS papers for ever. Probably longer then necessary. I thought institutions did the same. I am still disappointed that I don't exists at my original
Congregation. I better check my birth certificate . I might not actually be here.
