NY MUNI on digitizing band wagon (and Hell has not yet frozen over)
Every
time I hear about a fire in a record repository somewhere, I worry

at the Municipal Archives (an...

Tombstone Tuesday: Meyer Loveshak (Loscher or Loschak), Montefiore Cemetery
It took me a while to figure out that this person, identified on his tombstone as "Myer Loscher" was the same person identified in the Montefiore Cemetery internment index as "Meyer Lovashak," and Meyer Loveshak, who I knew to be the son of Sarah and Baruch...

Tombstone Tuesday: Sarah Loveshak, Montefiore Cemetery, Queens, NY
Researching the surname Loveshak does not produce easy Google search results. When one Googles on "Loveshak" one gets either information on the B-52's hit single or sites concerned with interpersonal relations.  Here lies our beloved mother Chaya Sarah Love...

The Extra Yad
Introduction
I have been researching my own family's history and my father's family town (Lubin or Labun, Ukraine) for several years.

The Extra Yad is a play on English and Hebrew (“Yad” means hand and is the name of the pointer used while reading from the Torah scroll) words reflecting the several realities of my involvement with Jewish genealogy: 
  • my desire to share knowledge and skills, 
  • my realization that one cannot do this kind of research in isolation, and 
  • my willingness to go to great lengths, when needed, to solve a problem.
My KehilaLinks (town) webpage for my family shtetl is at:
