An Introduction to Jewish Genealogy
This talk will focus on the unique challenges and rewards of Jewish genealogy - how it is different and often more difficult for many reasons among which are: the diaspora (the Babylonian exile from their original homeland and repeated forced dispersion of Jews from one country to another during the past 2,000 years); the changing borders of Eastern European countries from which most American Jews came; Jewish resistance to civil authority in Imperial Russia, the lack of surnames before the 18th century, the Holocaust, and name changes and spelling variations by early immigrants to America. Bill will discuss some of the more widely used specialized research resources for Jewish genealogy, and he will illustrate his talk with examples of how he was able to discover and document his own Jewish family history.
