Glaziers! (July2011)

Do you have Lubin glaziers in your family??!!  We have noticed that many of the Lubiners who became immigrants in New York City, regardless of their old wold occupation, became glaziers in New York City.  If you had relatives who became glaziers, I'd love to hear from you.  I am particularly interested in any stories and recollections of the businesses (what services they provided, how they got into the business) and photographs of people and places (including the business locations).  Please contact Emily Garber ( ).  

Labun/Lubin (May 2011)

The latest issue of the journal Avotaynu:  The International Review of Jewish Genealogy (Volume XXVII, Number 1, Spring 2011) includes an article by Emily Garber that uses data from the two First Lubiner Progressive Benevolent Association (landsmanshaft) burial plots in Montefiore Cemetery, Queens, NY to help identify shtetl of origin. 

The article ("Using Landsmanshft Burial Plots to Discover and Confirm the Location of a Family Shtetl") analyzes information associated with those interred to prove that the town they called Lubin (LooBEEN), Russia is the same as what was also called Labun and is now called Yurovshchina, Ukraine.
