Locating Published Family Histories #general


Seflaum@...
 

To Jewishgenners:
I have searched the internet but cannot find a list of published
genealogies/family histories of Jewish families (or for all published family
histories, for that matter. Does anyone know if such a list exists? I heard
through the grapevine, for example, that a Harold Berger in Ohio publishes
family history of Berger families. However, I cannot find any trace of him.
Any help would be appreciated.

For Poland, try Weiner, Miriam _Jewish Roots in Poland: Pages >from the Past and
Archival Inventories_ Clifton, NJ: Roots to Routes Foundatin, 1998.

I located (I think--I haven't received the copy yet) 60 pages of letters >from my
