Hillel Lazarus: Lewin-Paltiel Family Book

By Levi Clancy for לוי on

▶︎ View related▼︎ Tap to hide
Hillel Lazarus did this incredible undertaking.

In the early 1990s, Hillel created a Family Book containing about eight hundred pages of family history. It is a magnificent piece of work and below it is digitized in its entirety. Also included are links to scans of Hillel's source materials. Hillel was limited by the technology of his era, and the Family Book is populated with grainy photocopies of family pictures. When available, I have included clearly-marked links to clear, high-resolution scans of the original pictures.

Hillel divided the book into sections with no page numbers to allow himself to easily insert and modify content.

I scanned the entire Family Book. To organize the scans, I maintained Hillel's sections and added sub-sections. Within each sub-section, I have numbered the pages.
