Sunday, July 29, 2018 Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland meeting

Speaker: Kira Dolcimascolo
Title: “The Lewin Family of Könnern”
Date and Time: Sunday, July 29, 2018, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd, Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, July 29, 2018, at 1:30 p.m., at the Pikesville Library’s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Road, Pikesville, to hear Kira Dolcimascolo present “The Lewin Family of Könnern.”

In this presentation, Kira Dolcimascolo tells the story of her great-great-grandparents, Jacob and Täubchen Lewin, who lived Könnern, a small town in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, in the late 19th century. She provides some background for each of their families in small towns in Poland (Pinne) and Germany (Gröbzig), and recounts the fates of Jacob and Täubchen’s seven children, their spouses, and their grandchildren as they successfully—and unsuccessfully—sought to escape the grip of rising Fascism in Germany. She will share resources for German/Prussian Jewish genealogy and will describe creative techniques for finding Jewish-German ancestors in small towns in Germany and around the globe.

Kira Dolcimascolo has lived in Baltimore for 29 years. She has actively researched her Jewish-German and Sicilian roots for the past 5 years; her knowledge of her ancestors from Germany/Prussia now extends to the 17th and 18th centuries. When not obsessively researching her family’s genealogy, she works as a school-based occupational therapist and assists her husband with their painting and decorating business.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at for late updates and for the time, location, and program of future meetings.
