From the Jewish Historical Society of Napa Valley:
Jewish Historical Society of Napa Valley is planning a new book on Napa Valley's Jewish heritage, to be published by Arcadia Publishing. Jews have been an integral part of Napa Valley since 1848 and have been important in farming, viticulture, banking, community organizations, and social life. Henry Michalski and Donna Mendelsohn are compiling information for the book.
The Jewish Historical Society is now sending out a call for photos to be considered for inclusion in the book. Of particular interest are photos relating to the period from 1848 through the 1950's, although photos up to the present day are also welcome. Photos for consideration should have inscription and/or personal connections with Napa Valley individuals. Information on or photos of Grossman's and Albert's department stores are particularly needed.
All photos will be treated with respect and will be returned as soon as possible. They will be evaluated for thematic relationship to the book and will be acknowledged.
Please consider sharing your family history. The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2011.
For more information, contact the Jewish Historical Society at info@JHSNV.org, (707) 251-9092, or (707) 259-5332, or Henry Michalski at firstname.lastname@example.org or (707) 812-4812.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
