Tip from the Archivist: Researching Jewish Genealogy?

We would like to share some helpful resources from the American Jewish Historical Society and New England Historic Genealogical Society. With these three links, you can discover what types of information is available and how to use it most efficiently in your research. As a reminder, we are now strategic partners with the New England Historic Genealogical Society, so membership in either organization entitles members access to everything both organizations have to offer.

The first resource takes you to our recent webinar concerning genealogical resources at AJHS-NEA. Viewing this webinar will prepare you for research online or at our facilities. In the presentation we recommend appropriate genealogical collections, instruct researchers in using our digital archives and online finding aids, and explain how to use available newspaper and cemetery databases.

The second resource takes you to a recently created subject guide. This guide gives you much of the same information as our webinar, presented in written format for continued reference.

The third resource is the Jewish Genealogical Resources at The New England Historic Genealogical Society on our website. This is an extensive list of all the Jewish resources in the NEHGS catalog and can be browsed for topics of interest to your research. It includes titles, authors, locations, and call numbers of materials.

We hope you take a look at these valuable resources!
