Stern's "First American Jewish Families" available online #general
Teri Tillman <natzrose@...>
The American Jewish Archives has been kind enough to place Rabbi Malcolm H.
Stern's book, "First American Jewish Families," online. It may be viewed at:
http://www.americanjewisharchives.org/aja/FAJF/. One may search by surname
or one may browse an alphabetical list of surnames.
As for the HYAMS, SOLOMON, POLOCK / POLLOCK, NORDHAUS, ALEXANDER, TILLMAN,
etc. tree presented in this book, let the researcher beware. My husband is a
TILLMAN descended >from this Moses HYAMS, and I am well-acquainted with this
family. Stern's HYAMS family tree omits a number of individuals and contains
a number of significant errors. These errors have unfortunately been copied
and incorporated into many family trees which may be found on the Internet.
