Challenges in Jewish Ancestral Research

Jewish genealogy | lecture series

Janette Silverman, Ancestry.com

Many Jews have grown up thinking no records of family in Europe survived the war. Worse, families often refused to discuss the lives of immigrant ancestors in Europe; name those who remained in Europe; or share places relatives were from. If they were spoken of, towns and villages named often could not be identified on a map. People were referred to by so many different names, it often seemed as though they were five separate individuals. “Challenges in Jewish Ancestral Research” will discuss why identifying the names of our ancestors, dates of birth, death and marriage and the places they came from are so difficult.
