Researching Jewish ancestry is in many respects like researching any other family history, but in addition some specialized online sources are unique to Jewish research. Learn about the most useful of these sites and what information you can expect to find. The information presented will be of great help to those who are just beginning research into their Jewish family history as well as providing important information to the more experienced researchers. A question-and-answer period will be included after the presentation.
