Discovering Your Jewish Ancestors

“Discovering Your Jewish Ancestors is a user-friendly introduction to the basics of Jewish genealogical research. Krasner-Khait writes in a chatty, accessible tone that helps her demystify aspects of genealogy that can overwhelm the novice, such as the mystery of surname origins and how to find an ancestral town...Discovering Your Jewish Ancestors fulfills the current need for an un-intimidating and up-to-date introduction to Jewish genealogy...[an] important characteristic of the book…is its generous, warm, and clear tone: Krasner-Khait shares her own stories and those of others, refers to other Jewish genealogy experts often and credits them for their contributions, clearly explains genealogical records and how to find them, and generally makes the reader feel that ‘I can do that, too!’”
