Welcome to my Jewish Genealogy web site
Some geneticists theorize that everyone on earth is at least a 50th cousin to someone else - and both Albert Einstein and Charles Darwin married their first cousins. If you go back far enough to Jacob, you'd be related to every genetic Jew; if you go back to Adam and Eve --to all mankind.
And as you go through my site, we can get closer ...
This web site began as a 'place holder' for the many links that I had reviewed and felt were worthwhile to re-visit in the future as I was developing my own family tree. Later, when I decided that these links and bits of information would benefit other genealogists, I made the decision to share this information with all who wanted to research their own Jewish roots. My site isn't perfect, nor is it complete, but it sure beats having to search a lot of records at the library or traveling all over the net and best of all it's free!
The idea of this site wasn't to create another web site, nor another web portal, but to serve as a fountainhead of what already exists. It is estimated that there are over 8,000 Jewish web sites. I'll never be able to list them all in my lifetime, but I am hoping someone will pick up the baton in the future. I've got "tons" of material just waiting to be added with thousands of links along with bits and pieces of research material.
The intelligence consists in describing the content of those various web sites, so that it becomes easier for people to locate specific web sites that could provide reliable information on specific subjects. The current method of searching the web is to use various search engines - my goal is to offer as many of those sites that you would need to crawl - but have the links in one place.
Apparently it has been useful --- as well over 350,000 visitors have viewed this site since its inception. Thanks! I'm pleased to provide this site for your benefit. Although keeping up this web site is time consuming, it has become my passion.
Unfortunately, I'll never be able to completely finish as all of the work load rests on my shoulders. I welcome any help I can get.*
One of the best things you can leave future generations of your family is accurate genealogy information. Creating your family tree isn't as difficult as it may seem at first glance. Start with your own family -yourself, your siblings and your parents. The best advice is to be sure to have accurate dates and places of birth information as it is crucial to future research.
When entering my web site, you will find that each Link provides you with easy, one-click accessibility by Country and/or by specific Subject - (all in alphabetical order) -- to the thousands of web sites that I have visited over the past ten-plus years.
My "How To Use This Site" page can be of great help to you, if you are looking for a specific country or subject.
Please note that some links will not work MAINLY BECAUSE some sites have been moved to a different address after I posted it's address or because OF A THOUSAND MORE REASONS and besides, I'm not perfect!
When you come across a "dead link", I would appreciate it if you would let me know. Just use my Email link
