9780394406756: Finding our fathers: A guidebook to Jewish genealogy

Most American Jews believe they can only trace their families back for two or three generations. In this work Dan Rottenberg proves that they are wrong and shows how to do a successful search for probing the memories of living relatives, by examining marriage licenses, gravestones, ship passenger lists, naturalization records, birth and death certificates, and other public documents, and by looking for clues in family traditions and customs. Supplementing the "how to" instructions is a guide to some 8,000 Jewish family names, giving the origins of the names, sources of information about each family, and the names of related families whose histories have been recorded. Other features included a country-by-country guide to tracing Jewish ancestors abroad, a list of Jewish family history books, and a guide to researching genealogy in Mormon records and in Israel.

From Library Journal:

Rottenberg offers advice on tracing the roots of Jewish families and supplies the names and addresses of organizations that could aid the search. He includes a long list of names with genealogical information (LJ 5/1/77).
