Grodno Organizations

by Jerry Seligsohn

The following names have been taken from celebratory publications found in the YIVO library which were donated to the library when the following organizations disbanded. 
  1. Ecos de Grodno,Buenos Aires 1956
  2. 40th Anniversary Grodno's Workman's Circle, NY 1947

From the 1950's and on, Landsmanshaften lost membership and purpose. The need for cemetery plots, social services, relief to brethren in Belarus as well as speaking Yiddish and sharing memories of the old country no longer provided the basis for a cohesive organization. Many of these landsmanshaften dissolved and donated their papers and records to YIVO. Had they known that Jewishgen would forward some of their purposes with its emphasis on history and genealogy the landsmanshaften might have evolved and merged into Jewishgen and donated to us their membership lists and genealogy. I could not find membership lists in the YIVO records. Names were gleaned from stationery listings of officers and from donation boxes found in celebratory publications which were used to provide for the cost of the publication.
