Please join us on Sunday, July 29, 2018, at 1:30 p.m., at the
Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville,
to hear Kira Dolcimascolo present “The Lewin Family of Koennern.”

In this presentation, Kira Dolcimascolo tells the story of her
great-great-grandparents, Jacob and Taeubchen Lewin, who lived
Koennern, a small town in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, in the late 19th
century. She provides some background for each of their families in
small towns in Poland (Pinne) and Germany (Groebzig), and recounts the
fates of Jacob and Taeubchen’s seven children, their spouses, and
their grandchildren as they successfully—and unsuccessfully—sought to
escape the grip of rising Fascism in Germany. She will share resources
for German/Prussian Jewish genealogy and will describe creative
techniques for finding Jewish-German ancestors in small towns in
Germany and around the globe.

Kira Dolcimascolo has lived in Baltimore for 29 years. She has
actively researched her Jewish-German and Sicilian roots for the past
5 years; her knowledge of her ancestors >from Germany/Prussia now
extends to the 17th and 18th centuries. When not obsessively
researching her family’s genealogy, she works as a school-based
occupational therapist and assists her husband with their painting and
decorating business.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at for late updates and for the time, location, and program
