Forced to flee the brutal pogroms of Europe, Jewish immigrants sought refuge in the beauty of Boston's North Shore. Drawing on their artisan skills, many found work in the tanneries of Peabody and the shoe factories of Lynn, while other enterprising Jews established their own businesses in Salem and Beverly- from butcher shops and groceries to newspapers. Alongside fellow members of the Jewish Historical Society of the North Shore, Alan Pierce has carefully assembled a collection of personal histories from generations of Jewish families. Celebrating the rich flavors of Jewish culture, these accounts capture familiar faces, such as renowned athlete Herb Brenner, and recognizable landmarks like the Kernwood Country Club and the Dolphin Yacht Club, innovative establishments open to all regardless of race or religion. With entrepreneurial spirit, a little determination and plenty of faith, the North Shore's storied Jewish communities have etched enduring marks on its streets and in its synagogues.

"The Genealogist's Address Book is the answer to the perennial question, 'What's out there in the world of genealogy?' What organizations, institutions, special resources, and websites can help me? Where do I write or phone or send e-mail? Once again, Elizabeth Bentley's Address Book answers these questions and more. Now in its 6th edition, The Genealogist's Address Book gives you access to all the key sources of genealogical information, providing names, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail addresses, websites, names of contact persons, and other pertinent information for more than 27,000 organizations, including libraries, archives, societies, government agencies, vital records offices, professional bodies, publications, research centers, and special interest groups. Based on a written survey of thousands of organizations and institutions across the country, and supplemented by information from printed and Internet sources, the new 6th edition of the Address Book has been extensively revised and updated, eliminating undeliverable addresses and defunct organizations, while adding thousands of additional sources. Besides new websites and e-mail addresses, the new edition features greatly expanded coverage of archival agencies and vital records offices, especially in the New England states and New York. In addition, it is now easier to use than ever, with all 27,000 entries divided into two easy-to-use sections."--P. [4] of cover.
