FamilySearch Adds Jewish Genealogy Resource Page

By Diane Haddad

FamilySearch has created a new page especially for people researching Jewish ancestors.

The page links to the new Knowles Collection, information genealogical author Isobel Mordy compiled on thousands of Jews from the British Isles. You can download the database as a GEDCOM to open and view in your genealogy software. FamilySearch staffers are adding to the database regularly.

Other resources include an updated Jewish genealogy research outline, a Jewish records guide and links to other Jewish research Web sites.
