Conference Proceeding: "Yikhes": Researching Your Roots at The Dorot Jewish Division, New York Public Library

The Dorot Jewish Division is one of the world's great Judaica collections, freely accessible in The New York Public Library (NYPL). It serves researchers from around the block and around the world and genealogy is one of the most popular research topics. Together with colleagues in the Milstein Division of Local History, U.S. History and Genealogy, and throughout NYPL, we have a wealth of resources available for your genealogical research. This talk will provide an overview of the Dorot Jewish Division, explore how to utilize the physical and digital collections for genealogical research, and showcase some of the diverse and unexpected research sources that can help you better understand your own yikhes (lineage).
