A JewishGen win/win project #lodz #poland

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear 'Genners

You have always sought a JewishGen that meets your own needs, a JewishGen
that keeps the services free to you the user, the researcher of your
personal Jewish heritage. You require a JewishGen that's committed to
finding and presenting projects that ensure a win/win situation.

"Published by JewishGen" is just such a project. You've told us by your
enthusiastic response so far that "Preserving our Litvak Heritage...A
History of 31 Jewish Communities in Lithuania" by Josef Rosin was the
correct book to launch this new project.

In addition to being a monumental work of 736 pages with over 500
photographs, some >from private family collections, there is an extensive
forward written by the eminent scholar Professor Dov Levin. Each chapter is
devoted exclusively to one of the 31 Lithuanian communities, a list too
lengthy to mention here, but a visit to the JewishGenMall will identify
them for you.

To make this another win/win situation, you can purchase Rosin's book at a
40% discount, but only up until April 30th, and only through the
JewishGenMall. All proceeds >from sales at the Mall flow into the JewishGen
General Fund which helps defray the mounting operating expenses. So, every
time you purchase any product >from the JewishGenMall you are helping us
meet our financial needs. The more JewishGen benefits >from your purchases,
the longer we can keep >from becoming a fee-based service, something
JewishGen has been trying so hard to avoid since it first began.

If Lithuania is ***your*** ancestral home, Rosin's expanded history offers
you extensive material >from archival sources as well as personal memoirs.
It is truly a picture of the life and times in these communities >from their
early beginnings and ending with the Nazi's attempts to annihilate all of
Lithuanian Jewry. For any researcher who is looking for information about
Lithuania, especially about these 31 towns, this book is a personal
treasure. It will also be a treasure for your children and your
grandchildren.

Whatever country is part of your research interests, please take a look at
all the material you will find in the mall. Just select that country >from
the drop-down search list in the TOPICS field. You will find an
extraordinary collection at very competitive prices. If Josef Rosin's book
is of interest, click on the picture of the book cover to read more about
it and place your order at the pre-publication 40% discounted price which
is only $52.80, plus S&H. You can buy as many copies as you need for
other family members at this heavily discounted price.

For a real win/win situation, make the JewishGen Mall your first stop when
looking to purchase Jewish-interest books, software, CDs, or
videos. You'll save money on most purchases, and you'll help keep all of
the valuable JewishGen services free. Visiting
<http://www.JewishGenMall.Org>www.jewishgenmall.org will truly be a win/win
situation!

Belchatow Birds of a Feather--------- Meeting at IAJGS Conference #lodz #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Dear Belchatow Researchers,

A LARG (Lodz Area Research Group) SIG meeting will be held at the IAJGS
Conference in Los Angeles this summer. The exact date and time should be
posted on their website in May. In addition, several of you also expressed
an interest in a Belchatow BOF (Birds of a Feather) get together. We had a
BOF meeting in Washington, DC which was very successful in terms of making
family connections and sharing research specific to this shtetl.

Please let me know if you are interested in attending a meeting about
Belchatow, Poland. The exact time and place will be set once I know how
many people are interested and the restrictions of our schedules. If you
are not registered for the whole conference, please let me know what days
you plan to attend. It would also be productive to tell me ahead of time,
what surnames you are researching and grant permission to share this
information with others planning to attend this meeting. That way if any
of us have documents >from Belchatow that include names the rest of us are
researching, we can bring copies to the meeting. I will also bring any data
that may not be on the Belchatow ShtetLinks website by the time of the
meeting.

Belchatow is located approximately 27 miles south of Lodz. Nearby towns and
villages include: Grocholice (2.4 miles SSW), Kamiensk (11.5 miles SSE),
Szcercow (11.7 miles W), Rozprza (11.7 miles ESE), Piotrkow Trybunalski
(13.1 miles E), Sulmierzyce (14.9 miles SSW), Tuszyn (17.6 miles NNE), Lask
(18.4 miles NW) Widawa (19.2 mles WNW), Pabience (20.7 miles N) and Radomsko
(20.9 miles S). Groholice is within present-day Belchatow. To learn more
about this shtetl, see the Belchatow ShtetLink site listed in my signature
below. If your family lived in any of these places, it's possible some of
your family also lived in Belchatow and may have records in the Belchatow
Jewish civil record registers.

I look forward to seeing you in July.

Sincerely,
Roni

Having just returned >from a trip to Cape Town, I
would like to inform SIG members that the most
wonderful books on South African Jewry are to be
found at various second-hand bookshops.
(Most of the cities have Charity second hand bookshops).
So, if this lies in your interest, don't forget to visit
and spend time by going through all the various
books on Judaism.

A JewishGen win/win project #usa

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear 'Genners

You have always sought a JewishGen that meets your own needs, a JewishGen
that keeps the services free to you the user, the researcher of your
personal Jewish heritage. You require a JewishGen that's committed to
finding and presenting projects that ensure a win/win situation.

"Published by JewishGen" is just such a project. You've told us by your
enthusiastic response so far that "Preserving our Litvak Heritage...A
History of 31 Jewish Communities in Lithuania" by Josef Rosin was the
correct book to launch this new project.

In addition to being a monumental work of 736 pages with over 500
photographs, some >from private family collections, there is an extensive
forward written by the eminent scholar Professor Dov Levin. Each chapter is
devoted exclusively to one of the 31 Lithuanian communities, a list too
lengthy to mention here, but a visit to the JewishGenMall will identify
them for you.

To make this another win/win situation, you can purchase Rosin's book at a
40% discount, but only up until April 30th, and only through the
JewishGenMall. All proceeds >from sales at the Mall flow into the JewishGen
General Fund which helps defray the mounting operating expenses. So, every
time you purchase any product >from the JewishGenMall you are helping us
meet our financial needs. The more JewishGen benefits >from your purchases,
the longer we can keep >from becoming a fee-based service, something
JewishGen has been trying so hard to avoid since it first began.

If Lithuania is ***your*** ancestral home, Rosin's expanded history offers
you extensive material >from archival sources as well as personal memoirs.
It is truly a picture of the life and times in these communities >from their
early beginnings and ending with the Nazi's attempts to annihilate all of
Lithuanian Jewry. For any researcher who is looking for information about
Lithuania, especially about these 31 towns, this book is a personal
treasure. It will also be a treasure for your children and your
grandchildren.

Whatever country is part of your research interests, please take a look at
all the material you will find in the mall. Just select that country >from
the drop-down search list in the TOPICS field. You will find an
extraordinary collection at very competitive prices. If Josef Rosin's book
is of interest, click on the picture of the book cover to read more about
it and place your order at the pre-publication 40% discounted price which
is only $52.80, plus S&H. You can buy as many copies as you need for
other family members at this heavily discounted price.

For a real win/win situation, make the JewishGen Mall your first stop when
looking to purchase Jewish-interest books, software, CDs, or
videos. You'll save money on most purchases, and you'll help keep all of
the valuable JewishGen services free. Visiting
<http://www.JewishGenMall.Org>www.jewishgenmall.org will truly be a win/win
situation!
