New Jewish Genealogy ebook on JGSGB #general


Arlene Beare
 

I have updated my Guide to Jewish genealogy in Latvia and Estonia and
it is now in ebook format. I must stress that this will be of use to
researchers not only >from Latvia and Estonia but elsewhere in Eastern Europe.
There is a brief chapter on Sources in the UK and with one click you can go
to the National Archives. I have a brief Introduction to Genetic Genealogy
and one on Social Media with links to sites with a more detailed explanation.
This is the first ebook published by JGSGB (Jewish Genealogical Society Great
Britain) who will benefit >from the sales. There are a few copies in
print format but we wanted it to be mainly published as an ebook.
The second edition of my Book was in 2006 and many telephone numbers and
addresses of Archives have changed as well as Internet sites and email addresses
which means that the second edition is now out of date.
These have all been updated. There is information on Passports both Internal and
External. The book contains the excellent chapter written by Nick Evans on
Emigration detailing how our Ancestors got to other Countries >from Latvia
always remembering that many Lithuanians may also have sailed >from Libau now
Liepaja.

The book is listed under featured publications and you can buy it for
35 pounds.
You will receive am email giving you a username and password to access the
site in the future and another email with download details. The book is
in pdf format and easily navigable.
