Format: Paperback
What's the best thing about this book?
The Judaica section, where it talks about Jewish history/genealogy?
The Etymology section, with its fascinating secrets revealed about common Jewish surnames?
The Various Country Biographies?
The Jewish Genealogical Societies, complete with short biographies and research tips?
Or is it the massive Surname index in the back- over 3,000 names, I believe?
No, I think the best thing about this book is summed up in the introduction. It's a book FOR US. For Jews, about Jews, explaining the History of Jews in Europe and other places, and how we can find out about them.
So nu, buy a copy! It's worth it!

This book is extremely useful and readable. Not only does it provide plenty of specific Jewish genealogical information, it's a fabulous history lesson. Very useful.

I have a few books on Jewish geneaology and I rate this one to be one of my favorites. What I enjoyed was the thorough information showing how to conduct your own family research, along with information about family surnames at the back of the book.

Well written and informative. If you study genealogy, it is a must for your library. It opened several avenues for me, even though I believed that my ancestors were not Jewish. However, I had come to a road block, and it may turn out that one line were Christian Jews. Either way, I believe you will find this book interesting and worth the money.
