A Jewish Genealogy Journey
Individual family history, Jewish genealogy

I have been researching my family history since before 1990. See my family history blog at From Maine to Kentucky for my ancestry. I’ve found my husband’s recent ancestors in New York, New Jersey and Ohio. However, because all of his immigrant ancestors are Jewish and came through Castle Garden or Ellis Island, it has been a different kind of genealogy journey. I have decided to create a separate blog to share my findings of his ancestors.

If you want to share anything about common ancestors, contact me at elizhandler -at- gmail.com.
Eliyahu’s Branches
Individual family history, Jewish genealogy

Chaim Freedman is updating his database of descendants of the Vilna Gaon and his siblings, published in his book ”Eliyahu’s Branches – the Descendants of the Vilna Gaon and His Family” (Avotaynu 1997).

"In the light of additional material received from many families and with resource to new archival records which were not available when my book was published, I am reassessing the data.
I invite those, whose families appear in my book, to send updates of children born since the book’s publication twelve years ago, and any corrections. I would also like to hear from all families who hold a tradition of a relationship with the Gaon."
