(US-NYC) Video of New York City in 1911 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

With so many people worldwide with connections to immigrants coming to New
York City this restored film >from 1911 may be of interest.

Revisit New York City in 1911 is a restored film shot by a Swedish
documentary team which set out to capture the most celebrated places in the
world at the time.

In 1911, New York City was approaching 5 million people. The clothing and
modes of transportation are the most fascinating. This was shown last year
at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

If you scroll down you will find links to a 1905 video showing New York City
Subway and another of New York City in the 1930s.

video page.

Camp Avuka, Liberty, NY #general

Jeffrey Knisbacher
 

In writing my parent's history (my father a refugee >from Hitler's
Germany who arrived here in 1938, my mother born in Baltimore of
Ukrainian parents), I came across a June, 1940 picture taken at the
Zionist Camp Avuka in Liberty, NY. It is apparently the first picture my
mother ever took of my father. He is seated with two friends, all
sitting bare chested  in shorts, cross-legged in front of a tent, like
Indians in a pow wow, and the picture is captioned "three braves".

Apart >from my late father, Max KNISBACHER, the other men are unknown to
me, with just first names: Morty and Wolfgang. The latter is an
obviously German name and I'm wondering if he was a friend that my
father had known >from Germany, about whom I would like to know more.
Perhaps Morty was, too. In a separate photo of Morty alone, he is called
"strongman Morty". There are also other pictures, including one, in poor
shape, naming a Moshe ZELLENITZ, with possibly a friend named Chava,
whose picture was glared out. I am very interested in learning as much
as I can about Camp Avuka and the people who attended and will be happy
to share all these pictures.  Jeff KNISBACHER

IAJGS Welcomes Jewish Genealogy Society of Northeast Florida as Newest Member #general

Nolan Altman
 

On behalf of the IAJGS Board and our current membership, it is with great
pleasure that we welcome the Jewish Genealogy Society of Northeast Florida
as the newest member of our growing family of IAJGS organizations. For more
information about the Jacksonville, Florida society, please see their
website at https://jgsofneflorida.wordpress.com/ or their Facebook group
"Jewish Genealogy Society of Northeast Florida"
(https://tinyurl.com/ycfbumh8 ).
[MOD. NOTE: original URL - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1711798505498114/ ]

The group meets monthly in the Auditorium at River Garden Senior Services,
11401 Old St. Augustine Road, Jacksonville, Florida. Some of the groups'
upcoming meetings will include discussions of the first Jewish families in
Jacksonville and the possibility that that some of the early settlers in
1565 St. Augustine were conversos. Additionally, later this summer they plan
to screen some documentary films with Jewish genealogy content.

The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) was
formed in 1988 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. IAJGS is an umbrella
group of organizations which provides a common voice for issues of
significance to its members, to advocate for and educate about our
genealogical avocation, and to coordinate items such as the annual
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy. For more information on
IAJGS, please see our website at http://www.iajgs.org/blog/ or contact me at
