Summer issue of AVOTAYNU #announcements

Gary Mokotoff

The Summer issue of AVOTAYNU is at the printer this week. A large number of subjects are covered by the 12 articles that appear including city directories, Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People, Arolsen Archives, American Jewish Yearbook, Bremen as an emigration port, and more.


One type of article that I enjoy that appears from time to time in AVOTAYNU is an overall survey of genealogical research in a specific country. The Summer issue has such a six-page article on family history research in Finland. You may not have Finnish ancestors, but this article might describe a resource that you never considered that might exist in your countries of ancestry.


In addition to the 12 articles, there are the usual columns: From Our Contributing Editors, U.S. Update, Ask Dr. Beider, Brick Walls, Book Reviews (two reviews) and From Our Mailbox.
