JewishGen Continues to Grow

Susan King, president of JewishGen, Inc., reported to people
attending the 20th International Seminar on Jewish Genealogy the
following current statistics about the Internet "Home of Jewish
3 million hits per month
1 million page views per month
7,300 users sessions per day
400,000 searches of the 67 databases
18 minutes is the average time of a visit
1,000 trees in the Family Tree of the Jewish People
1.5 million people in the Family Tree of the Jewish People
36,000 researchers in the JewishGen Family Finder
1,169 towns of ancestry have Web sites on ShtetlLinks
1,619 financial contributors to JewishGen

All of these numbers are impressive except the last. Despite the
fact that it is obvious that thousands of people use JewishGen
regularly, its growth is being hampered because of the financial
constraints of not enough contributors. If you use JewishGen more
than four times a month or subscribe to one of the Discussion
Groups under its umbrella, and you have not contributed money to
make JewishGen grow, consider making a $25 contribution. It is
easy to do by credit card at There
are now more than 3,600 readers of "Nu? What's New?" If just 400
readers contributed $25 each, it would give JewishGen $10,000 to
expand their services to the Jewish genealogical community.
