Seeking guide to Jewish genealogical writing #general


Fern Blood <feblood@...>
 

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a guide to genealogical writing (similar to the NEHGS
guide by Stratton & Hoff) but specific to Jewish genealogy? In particular:
how to convey names of immigrant ancestors who Americanized their names
after arrival; how to include Hebrew names (as shown on headstones in
particular); how to cite foreign document sources (Russian/Ukrainian); etc.
Any published genealogies that could serve as a guide? Has anyone developed
their own style sheet?

Thank you,
