Overview of the Collection

Creator: First Radymnoer Congregation Bnai Mordcha Menachem (N.Y.)
Collection Title: Records of the First Radymnoer Congregation Bnai Mordcha Menachem
Abstract: These are the records of the First Radymnoer Congregation Bnai Mordcha Menachem, a landmanshaft or benevolent association. Upon the dissolution of the society, the records were collected by the New York State Department of Insurance. Although many of these societies were founded around the turn of the twentieth century, the records collected in this way primarily date from the second half of the century (1950-2000). The landsmanshaftn collections generally include constitutions, by-laws, minutes, correspondence with members, financial ledgers, deeds to graves, cemetery maps, and membership lists. For details on this particular collection, see the scope and content note.
