Yizkor Book - Required Reading for Jewish Genealogy
With Rachel Jablon, PhD Candidate in Jewish Literature
Congregation Har HaShem, 3950 Baseline Road, Boulder

Yizkor books, or Jewish memorial books, offer Jewish genealogists a
goldmine of information on ancestors, places of origin, religious
movements, industrial trends, and Holocaust history. This presentation
will cover the history and historiography of Yizkor books: what they
are, when they came to be, where they come from, why they were
published, who put them together, and how to use them. More
information available on our website at
