Among his accomplishments is co-authorship of the Daitch Mokotoff Soundex System; the JewishGen Family Finder, a database of ancestral towns and surnames being researched by some 84, 000[4] Jewish genealogists throughout the world and the Consolidated Jewish Surname Index. He is co-owner of Avotaynu, a company that publishes books of interest to Jewish genealogical researchers as well as the journal Avotaynu. He is/was on the Board of Directors of a number of organizations including the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, Federation of Genealogical Societies, Association of Professional Genealogists, Jewish Book Council, Association of Jewish Book Publishers, and JewishGen.
