Please note that Tracing the Tribe – The Jewish Genealogy Blog is on hiatus. I no longer post to it, and rarely read the comments here on WordPress or on the original blog site at Blogger.
All activity for Tracing the Tribe is now on Facebook at Tracing the Tribe – Jewish Genealogy on Facebook. You can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/20364215746/
Click on the link, and ask to join. When you are approved, please list the Jewish families you are researching and where they are from, what you have already discovered and what you wish help with. Our nearly 4,000 members are happy to assist with translations and tips on how to proceed with your projects.
Please read the guidelines for the Facebook group. They are very important for the smooth functioning of the group. Here are the guidelines which are also found pinned to the Facebook page:
NEW Simple rules: No politics, no commercial sales, no proselytizing. This is a JEWISH genealogy group and all postings must have some connection to Jewish genealogy. Thanks to all who abide by the rules. Inappropriate posts – and the poster – will be removed immediately. Posts in English, please! ADDITION: All information and documents provided in these posts by members may NOT be used for any purpose whatsoever without the express written consent of the poster.
