Overview

From Generation to Generation is the only up-to-date resource that addresses the needs and sensibilities of Americans of Jewish heritage, particularly those of Eastern European origin, who are interested in exploring their family trees. Written for both the novice and the experienced genealogist, this book shows readers how to trace their family histories back through their immigrant ancestors to the shtetls (Jewish villages) of the Russian Pale of Settlement. Both inspirational and informative, it relates the author's own experience in researching his family, and includes practical advice on how to gather information from family members and family papers, Holocaust research, immigration and naturalization records, cemetery research and more.
