Harry Stein, founder of www.sephardim.com, is expecting the millionth hit any day on his fascinating site.
If you are searching your family’s Sephardic roots, check out the name search feature, which contains about 35,000 names, derived from indexes of published books, databases and other sources.
Many names are identified by multiple references, “as many as 10-20,” says Stein.
With the knowledge of which books contain their names of interest, researchers can follow up in those sources, which may well provide additional clues.
The Web site offers a very active discussion group with 1,700 forum members worldwide.
