Dear Fellow Researchers,
A fellow genealogist and I discovered this new web site today:
This is >from the introduction to site:
"This website contains the complete contents of the 12-volume Jewish
Encyclopedia, which was originally published between 1901-1906. The Jewish
Encyclopedia, which recently became part of the public domain, contains over
15,000 articles and illustrations. This online version contains the unedited
contents of the original encyclopedia. Since the original work was completed
almost 100 years ago, it does not cover a significant portion of modern
Jewish History (e.g., the creation of Israel, the Holocaust, etc.)..."
The entire text is searchable. Images may be located by searching for text in
the captions. Enjoy!
