Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This book is designed for the Jewish person who knows absolutely nothing about genealogy. The author's goal is to create an easy-to-read manual that would lead a novice genealogist through the process of creating a four-to six-generation family tree. David emphasizes the importance of using the Internet, calling computers an indispensable research tool. She tells how to get online and gives a sampling of Jewish genealogy Web sites. The author explains how to collect oral histories from relatives (she includes a long and detailed interview form) and discusses the various types of documents, records, and memorabilia (including government records) that can shed light on family history. She points out that first names and surnames can provide clues to a family history, suggests visiting the family's homeland, and offers a historical look at Jewish emigration and immigration. A final chapter gives advice on creating and preserving genealogical treasures. George Cohen
