Michael Shade is a retired teacher in the U.K. and a prolific genealogist and blogger. He describes his own work on his Jewish family’s connections in Gąbin Poland as follows:
“At the moment these notes mostly concern Shreibman, Ilitovich, Levin, Lefshitz, Alievsky, Frankenstein, Finkelstein, Waxman, Hodys, Szwarc, Faigin – mostly from what is now Belarus and Eastern Poland. If you hit two or more of these you may well be connected to me. I may also be liable to chatter on about Jewish genealogy, on genealogy in general, and on ways of telling our family stories. 21-7 because that’s my birth-day, and coincidentally it’s also the proportion of my life I seem to spend messing about on the computer.”
Gombin Society Partnerships in Poland
The Gombin Society has established partnerships with two important institutions in Gabin. The Staszic School is one of two high schools in the town and was the site of a Forum for Dialog program in 2019. The agreement commits us to work with the faculty and students to teach about the Jewish history of Gabin and promote better understanding. Razem (Together We Can Do Better) is a civic organization committed to promoting multicultural ties through ongoing projects in Gabin. They are actively supporting refugees of the Ukraine War and sending medical supplies to Ukraine.
