Synagogues of the Lower East Side #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,

About a month ago I went down to the Lower East Side of Manhattan and took
photos of most all the synagogues that still stand on the Lower East Side of
Manhattan. It is sad that so many of the synagogues that once existed there
have met with the wrecking ball or are now being used for a different
purpose. The Romaniote synagogue is currently undergoing renovations as is
the Eldridge Street Synagogue. The renovation of the latter should be
completed sometime in 2007. I have created a webpage featuring a photograph
of six of the remaining synagogues on the Lower East Side. Along with each
photo is mention of the year it was built, the address of each, along with a
short history of the building. I hope to add more about these and other
synagogues in the future. The link to this page is

Revised Warszawa Immigration List #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings,

I have made a very large update to my recently-posted list of those who last
resided in Warszawa before immigrating through Ellis Island. The list that
once contained more than 16,000 immigrant names with dates of birth and
immigration, now tops 46,000! These names are now on twenty-three pages and
are arranged alphabetically by surname. Again my apology for the extra time
it might take slower computers to download these web pages.

It should be noted that not all the people who are listed as last residing
in Warszawa lived there for many years. Some might have moved there, for
example, and stayed with in-laws or other relatives before emigrating or
might have been there for a short time for other reasons. They might have
stopped off in Warszawa while they were in transit to their ship of
emigration.

So for all those who had checked my Warszawa list in the last week or so and
couldn't find a name they were looking for, please try again.
The direct link to the Warszawa list is
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/lee-ftp-warszawa-01.htm .
The link to the index page for my complete Warszawa collection is
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/lee-warszawa.htm .
I hope this list helps you in your research.

Goeie More , South African Siggers,

I am HALF thinking of going to Vieksniai, Lithuania and possibly immediate
surrounds like Luoke and Maziekiai (spelling?) but would like to know if
anyone >from here (S.Africa) is thinking of going too, to those areas. I am
in touch with Regina Kopelovitch and she has come highly recommended as a
Tour Guide. I am not keen to do a general Tour of Lithuania at this stage
because I only want to look in Vieksniai and immediate surrouding shtetles,
to find my LAPEDUS family . There are many LAPIDUS' all over the world, and
I have spent 10 years looking at their Family Histories and whilst I have
found many other LAPIDUS' families and matched them to various LAPIDUS', I
have not found my OWN Vieksniai branch, so Im giving the other "LAPEDI" a
rest, and Im going to seriously concentrate on LAPEDUS >from Vieksniai.
Levi'im.

so, anyone interested?

Tot siens, skatties!!
