Documenting Jewish communities in the United States not only includes Jewish cemeteries and synagogue memorial plaques, there are congregational records including vital records and Sephardic-liturgy Escabot lists, mohel registers, Jewish hospital and funeral home records, Jewish clubs and organizational materials, and more to be uncovered. This lecture showcases search techniques and websites where these Jewish genealogical gems may be found in archives, newspapers, rare books, or elsewhere. Featuring examples from the American Jewish Historical Society, the American Jewish Archives, regional Jewish historical society archives such as The Bremen Museum and DU's Beck Archive, state archives, FamilySearch, WorldCat, and more.
