The subscription genealogy site Ancestry.com and the Jewish roots site JewishGen have formed an alliance that’ll make JewishGen historical record databases available free on Ancestry.com.

Those databases include names of Holocaust victims, yizkor (memorial) books about Jewish communities destroyed during the Holocaust, the Given Names Database, and a ShtetlSeeker (helps you locate towns in Eastern and Central Europe).

You can search each database now on JewishGen, but by the end of this year, you’ll be able to go to Ancestry.com and search all the databases at once with a more-sophisticated search engine.

The JewishGen Web site also will be hosted in Ancestry.com’s data center.
