Looking for museums in the Old Country?

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles is putting together a list of museums in shtetls and small towns in all areas where Jews once lived.

Nancy Holden, editor of the JGSLA Roots-Key journal, asks "If in your travels, or travel preparations, you have heard or visited a local museum or know of a local historian, we would like to hear from you."

The list will become part of the society's project: "Recreating Your Ancestral Shtetl." JGSLA will work on this during 2007 and plans to publish results in a special issue by December.

For more information, click here to contact Holden, and to see the titles of the many excellent articles published in Roots-Key since 1994.
