I am not sure if this has been posted already but its worth doing again.
I have been reading copies of the American Jewish Year Books for some time
now. They give a great cross section of what had affected the lives of Jews
through out the world. In the latest issue of Dorot they make mention of
website associated with the American Jewish Committee Archives.
On this site there is a complete collection of the year books 1899-present.
If you ever wondered why the Jews of Russia ran to America read ">from
Kishineff to Bialystock" in the 1906 Jewish year book.
