Conference Proceeding: Make your Library a Magnet for Jewish Genealogists

Following up on a 2009 article in Judaica Librarianship, “Genealogy in the Jewish Library: An Update”, this session will inform librarians about ways to make their libraries welcoming to Jewish genealogists in their communities. Ms. Dwoskin’s article was comprehensive in 2009, describing resources such as JewishGen, Routes to Roots, the Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute, the Family History Library and the International Tracing Service, and PERSI, the comprehensive index to genealogical serials. It emphasized the importance of local genealogical societies and their newsletters. This session will highlight the changes to these resources.
