Finding Our Fathers - A Guidebook to Jewish Genealogy
by Dan Rottenberg
Most American Jews believe they can only trace their families back for two or three generations. In Finding Our Fathers, Rottenberg proves that they're wrong.
At the core of his book is a guide to some 8,000 Jewish family names, giving the origins of the names, sources of information about each family, and the names of related families whose histories have already been recorded.
Other special features include a country-by-country guide to tracing Jewish ancestors abroad, a list of Jewish family-history books, and a guide to researching Jewish genealogy in both Mormon records and in Israel.
