Jewishgen is the richest site for international Jewish genealogy. It includes:
The JewishGen Family Finder
(JGFF), similar to our rapprochement directory of Families. A large
proportion of surnames sought relate to Eastern Europe, particularly
Poland, Romania and the Russian Empire, but also Germany, Alsace, etc..
The consultation is free, but to enter information first must obtain a
code (click Enter).
The Family Tree of the Jewish People
(FTJP). This database of nearly one million family trees involving
names provided by participants of JewishGen, the IAJGS (International
Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies), and Beth Hatefutsoth
(Tel Aviv). To view it, it must first have its own information entered
in the JGFF and have thus obtained an ID and a password.
The base shows no data on births and marriages of persons born within the last 100 years and not died.
The JewishGen FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions, FAQ, or Frequently Asked Questions).
The JewishGen InfoFiles
(information files) are listed by subject (Topics), then by country
(Countries): So many issues appear twice. The index contains 11 pages.
The JewishGen Discussion Group, requires free registration
(JewishGen Forum): Its messages are received daily by tens of thousands
of genealogists: the archives of this forum allow access to some 90,000
messages exchanged since 1993 (questions and answers ), on diverse
subjects. Enjoy access using keywords and logical connections or, and,
then, whose principle is so exposed. You can also register for the
Forum, to ask questions and receive in your mailbox questions and
answers as you or in groups once a day at your choice.
Readers interested in research in any country abroad will connect to the corresponding SIG
website (Special Interest Group, our equivalent of Genealogical
Interest Groups) and may register for the corresponding forum. It is
very interesting to visit the Archives of GIS forums.
In particular, the French-SIG
site concerns France. We urge you to subscribe and participate actively
in discussions on this forum.
Heading ViewMate of JewishGen allows,
provided you have a scanner, ask for help to "anycast" to interpret a
picture, translate a short text, etc.., which is sent, in graphical
form. Once the document online and referenced VM XXXXX. He is clever
and recommended, excluding the most popular translations that work
quite well without this precaution, to draft a request for help on a
newsgroup or in a JewishGen SIG indicating the obtained reference.
For translations that are the most effective application of ViewMate,
this site being very popular and qualified translators and volunteers
in short supply, in practice only the vital records are likely
translated. It should be the file has sufficient resolution: Do not
send files therefore too small. Do not send either document extracts
that isolate a few words of context, but the full documents. Finally,
take the time to post your document with all relevant information on
the act that you have in your possession, and of course your question.
Do not fail when you get answers to thank your interlocutor by return
