We are most pleased to inform our readership that JewishGen has been chosen
by the Genealogy Forum
on AOL to receive the Best Site Pick for the month of December 1999.
GFSByron@aol.com writes in part:
"Your site has been chosen because of its comprehensive nature in providing
a resource for people searching their Jewish heritage. For over fourteen
years, JewishGen has been the leader in plowing the path of Jewish
genealogy on the cyber-world making it easier for those that follow
behind. JewishGen not only provides surname databases
where researchers can find each other and join efforts,
but the volunteers at JewishGen have a gold mine by freely sharing their
knowledge through research aids to help
people learn where to search for their ancestors. JewishGen also needs to
be commended for realizing the effects of working as a team not only among
their 200+ volunteers but with numerous other Jewish interest groups as well.
The information and organization of your site shows your dedication and
effort in providing easily accessible information to other genealogists. On
behalf of the
Genealogy Forum on AOL, we would like to thank you for
your time and effort in making the Internet a better
place to do research."
To view the award logo go to our homepage, http://www.jewishgen.org
and scroll down to the very bottom of the page. We
display it proudly and with heartfelt thanks to our
volunteers who work behind the scenes, to those who
have come forth with their financial support of our
efforts, and to all who contribute the information they
have acquired, thus participating in the JewishGen
mission of "preserving our history for future generations."
May I join with AOL and say to you all... well done!
Susan and the Officers and Board of JewishGen
