group forum for the exchange of information on German Jewish
genealogy. Contributions on genealogical issues are welcome

political, religious, and social issues which affected the activities
of our ancestors and enable us to understand their lives in
the contexts of their times.

provides links to other web sites of significant importance
to German Jewish researchers.
