Hardcover, Oblong folio in dustjacket, ix, 419 pages. 28 x 36 cm. Includes index. The American Sephardi Federation suggests that, “If you are studying Sephardic genealogy, the best place to start is with th[is] volume.” This work, as the title describes, features 600 massive fold-out family trees with approximately 50,000 names (!) It details families who first arrived in North America prior to 1840, and follows those families (Jewish and Non-Jewish)! When it first appeared in 1960, the book “marked a milestone in the study of American Jewish genealogy,” says the American Jewish Archives; it was also a major research source for Stephen Birmingham’s best-selling book The Grandees. An archivist at one of America's oldest Synagogues has declared, "We own the hardback edition that goes up to 1977 and we use it constantly. It consists entirely of family trees of every family of Jewish origin that came to America before 1840 (including Non-Jewish descendants). Every name is indexed in the back and there are cross-references when a name appears in more than one tree. Included with the names are places and dates of birth, marriage, death, and immigration." Stern, the compiler, was a rabbi, synagogue musician, historian and genealogist of early American Jewry. He was the grandnephew of Rabbi Joseph Krauskopf. He served as a chaplain in the U. S. Army Air Corps during World War II. In 1950 he became the official genealogist for the American Jewish Archives (Korn, EJ) . The book is now, unfortunately, out of print, though demand for it continues to grow, mirroring the ever-increasing interest in Jewish Genealogy. SUBJECT(S): Jews -- United States -- Genealogy.

Published by YIVO in conjunction with the Miriam Weiner Routes to Roots Foundation. “With its archival inventories representing 1, 400 shetls and towns, this book effectively puts to rest the once widely-held belief that virtually all documents pertaining to Jews in these countries had been destroyed during the Holocaust. These archives became accessible to the public for genealogy research only after Ukraine and Moldova declared independence in 1991. Here, listed for the first time in English, are precise inventories of the vast Jewish materials in the archives of Ukraine and Moldova, presented with the full cooperation and blessings of Ukrainian and Moldovan archivists. Of extraordinary value for Jewish genealogists, Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova is also a superlative travel guide, with 1, 200 photographs, maps, and document examples, including many rare antique postcards. The chapters on towns and cities highlight 189 places in Ukraine and Moldova. They include such important Jewish centers as Kiev, Lvov, Odessa, and Kishinev; and lesser-known places such as Shepetovka, Sudilkov, Soroki and Priluki. The sections entitled "The People and the Places" and "Town Clips" offer many more photographs of Jewish life, past and present. The Holocaust chapter includes poignant photographs of memorials to the victims of the Nazis in cities, towns and villages all over Ukraine and Moldova, along with detailed maps and accompanying text. Some photographs are pre-World War I, and some were taken just a few months prior to publication. More than 900 of the photographs are in full color, as are all 20 maps. Along with the reproductions of Jewish documents and family records, Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova, like its predecessor volume, Jewish Roots in Poland, is an exceptional resource as well as a poignant memorial album of unsurpassed quality and stunning visual impact. ” (Publishers description) Subjects: Jews - Ukraine - History - Pictorial works.
