Two New SURNAME DATABASES to Check Out! #announcements #records

Phil Goldfarb

The lead story in Gary Mokotoff’s Nu? What’s New? this week was a lengthy article about Miriam Weiner’s updated website of The Routes to Roots Foundation at . In addition, she also wrote an article in the new Fall 2020 issue of Avotaynu, The International Review of Jewish Genealogy. For those of you who do not subscribe to these valuable Jewish Genealogy resources, I wanted to let everyone know of the extraordinary and important additions to Miriam’s lifelong work.

I had a “preview tour” of the updated website and new surname databases where Miriam includes important information in the “Introduction” on the surname database page. It was exciting for me to see what she has done and is still doing so I wanted to share this release with the Discussion Group Members.

Miriam had her own roots in Tulsa, Oklahoma with her maternal grandparents and mother and we have become friends due to this connection. I urge you to check out her website and I have attached some helpful content descriptions for your perusal.

Good hunting!
