The society has pubished the new updated and expanded fifth edition of “Capital Collections: Resources for Jewish Genealogical Research in the Washington, DC Area.”
Planning a trip to the nation's capitol? Researching the area or live there? This 116-page guide is essential in so many ways.
Resources, phone numbers, websites and security information is updated; new sites are added. There's even a section on public transport, including a DC Metro system map.
The 31st IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will be in Washington DC in August 2011, and this guide will be invaluable for those planning research in conjunction with that event.
