Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up. In addition to being a comprehensive treatment of genealogy as a subject, this impressive work offers an in-depth survey of Jewish history as a framework for exploration. The author stresses the time-consuming and costly realities of a genealogy project. There are sections on the challenges presented for adoptees and for the children of single-parent families. Valuable information on tracing Holocaust victims is included. All of the chapters are followed by well-chosen lists of annotated resources, containing books, organizations, and on-line services. Black-and-white photographs and a full-color section entitled "A Jewish American Photo Album" lend poignancy to the text. The chapter "In the Beginning..." suggests that Moses may have been an Egyptian, a decidedly nonmainstream view. This title is a worthy complement to "must have" books on Jewish genealogy written for adults, such as Arthur Kurzweil's From Generation to Generation (HarperCollins, 1994).?Libby K.

Review

?In addition to being a comprehensive treatment of genealogy as a subject, this impressive work offers an in-depth survey of Jewish history as a framework for exploration. Each volume provides an easy to understand overview of the history of immigration and culture in the U.S. for the particular ethnic group....Where these books shine, for the student and adult genealogist, is in the resource listings....For students, these books provide a great way of getting started in genealogy and learning about the life and heritage of their ancestors. For adult researchers these books provide excellent resources to move beyond the genealogical books into learning about the history, culture and experience of their ancestors.?-School Library Journal
