Julie Waters-Barcomb asked about "the book Pinkas Hakehilot [that]
contains hundreds of rabbinical lineages." Pinkas Hakehilot (Encyclopedia
of Towns) is a multi-volume encyclopedia of the history of Jewish
communities primarily in Central and Eastern Europe. It is published by Yad
Vashem and written in Hebrew. To date about 15 volumes have been published,
each for a different region of Europe. Only one volume, Libya/Tunisia,
covers an area outside of Europe. They contain nothing about rabbinic
genealogies.
