New database: Lynn, MA: Harry Lipsky Company Records, 1934-1936

We are excited to announce a new collection! Lynn, MA: Harry Lipsky Company Records, 1934-1936, a collection From the Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center (JHC).  

The Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center (JHC) at New England Historic Genealogical Society is a destination for exploring, preserving, and advancing the history of Jewish families, institutions, and communities in New England and beyond. 

The Harry Lipsky Company was a furniture moving company founded in 1910 in Lynn, Massachusetts by Harry Lipsky, who owned and operated the company until his death in 1926. He was born between 1887 and 1888 in Slavita, Russia (modern-day Ukraine) and immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts around 1904. He married Dora Rabotnick in 1910, and together they had three children, Jacob “Jack,” Sidney Samuel, and Rose. His sons took over operations until the company was sold in 1988. 

This database contains a detailed ledger of all the moves that the Harry Lipsky Company undertook between 1934 and 1936, including the names and addresses of clients, and the cost and contents of the moves. 

We are grateful to the volunteers who indexed all of the names for this project, including Karen Del Vecchio, Sara Stison, Joan Sullivan, Amelia Devin Freedman, Jaimie Williams-Peterson, Eileen McCarthy.
