      Our first fall Sunday morning meeting, 10 a.m. on the 20th, features Stuart
      Tower, up from Southern California to talk about "Mass Jewish Emigration in
      the Early 20th Century." He is the author of the historical novel, the
      "Wayfarers," which may soon be made into a motion picture.

      And two items from the San Francisco Bay Area JGS newsletter that may be of
      interest. Following John Powell's talk last month on the value of city
      directories for research, the first relates to information on Rochester, NY
      directories:

      =======================
      Do You Have Rochester, NY Roots?
      From SFBAJGS President Jeremy Frankel: For those Society members with a
      genealogical interest in Rochester, New York, the following notice from Rootsweb
      should prove of interest.

      Previously published in RootsWeb, Review: 12 October 2005, Vol. 8, No. 41.

      New York: Rochester City Directories Online - The Central Library of
      Rochester and Monroe County (New York) announces the availability of its early city
      directories online. Currently all directories through the 1850s are online;
      later 19th century books are in the final stages of being prepared; and the entire
      collection of directories up to 1930 has been digitized and is in process.
      They are printable and downloadable PDF files.
      http://www.libraryweb.org/rochcitydir/citydirectories.html

      According to Rootsweb anyone is allowed to reprint providing the datestamp is
      included and it is used for educational, purposes only.
      ====================
      And, Are you Researching Horowitz or Margareten?

      Are you related to the Horowitz-Margareten families? President Jeremy Frankel
      has come into possession of a 1955, 212-page hardback publication "Directory
      and Genealogy of the Horowitz-Margareten Family." This work identifies some
      2,000 relatives, who are descended from Isaac Horowitz, who was born about 1797
      in Prague (though the genealogy extends back to a Moses born in 1440!).

      If you are related and interested in owning this book, please contact me
      privately at jfrankel@...

      =======================

      See you Sunday morning at the Albert Einstein Residence Center.
