The Families of Pittsburgh

My mom has been on my mind lately. First off, it was her yartzeit. Second, she figures prominently in the exhibit I will be installing at the American Jewish Museum tomorrow. But as always, when someone is around, they show up in the most unexpected places and this time it was in the Heinz History Center Archives new website www.jewishfamilieshistory.org They have done a monumental job organizing information on all of the Jewish families that have donated information to the archives. I did this when I moved out of my house in 2001. And here she is my mom, Sadye Barniker, pictured on her University of Pittsburgh ID as a proud member of the Shapiro Family.
