The Suwalk-Lomza Interest Group
for Jewish Genealogists

Apt 228   .   3701 Connecticut Ave. NW   .   Washington, D.C. 20008-4502


Membership in the Suwalk-Lomza Interest Group is defined as the purchase of at least any one, whole volume of Landsmen, current or past (i.e., any one of Vols. 1-23; or as of year 2015, the in-process Volume 24).  Cost per volume is $25 in the U.S.; in Canada $28 USD [Air]; for all other countries $35 USD [Air].  New members receive a free Family Finder ad, and gubernia maps.  Individualized research guidance is also given to new members (as needed, and within reasonable limits) at no extra charge.

Back issues of Landsmen may be ordered by Volume. Single issues are not sold individually; however, we invite members to order a "customized" volume(s) of their own choosing, factoring any double issue as the equivalent of any two single issues. Thus, a "customized volume" may consist of any one of the following combinations: either any 4 single issues; or any 2 double issues; or any 2 single issues plus 1 double issue.

Cost per "customized volume" is the same as the cost quoted above for any one whole, intact Volume (e.g. in the U.S.A., $25.)

The purchase of at least one “custom volume” of Landsmen issues — in lieu of any one whole, intact volume — counts as membership in the Suwalk-Lomza Interest Group for the calendar year in which the purchase is made.

If you think you would like to join us, but after reading all components of this web site you still have questions, you may dialogue with the Landsmen Editor through our Email address.
