FamilySearch.org adds Jewish resources

During the IAJGS conference, the local Deseret News carried a story about FamilySearch.org's new Jewish research page (with three online resources)and Dick Eastman's blog carried the official press release.

A new FamilySearch.org page includes a Jewish genealogy database, a new research guide called "Tracing Your Jewish Ancestors" and information on thousands of Jews from the British Isles called the Knowles Collection, which builds on the work of the late Isobel Mordy. The latter links individuals into family groups, with more names added continuously, according to a press release.

Dick Eastman published the official press release on his blog.
