I'm pretty new to the Mudcat, as many of you know.

You oldtimers are well acquainted with the work of
Frank Petersohn (1941 - 2009)
whose ambitions included
the creation of
"the largest online folksong database," at his site
ingeb dot org.

What does "ingeb" mean anyhow?

The ambition in quotes preceding, by the way, is a direct quote
from the obituary that was published in The Globe and Mail,
and reproduced at Petersohn's legacy-dot-com page.

Actually I'm surprised that Mr. Petersohn
didn't rate an Obit thread,
but that was ten years ago anyway.
