My Jewish Ancestry: Subforum rules

#1 Сообщение Женя Вайнштейн » 03 мар 2011, 02:51

This forum was organized by a group of voluntary genealogists. We can help you with the valuable advice how and where to find the information about your Jewish roots in the territory of the former USSR. Our experts are fluent in Russian. We experienced in dealing with archives in various parts of the former USSR. Please understand that we will not conduct research for you. We may be able to suggest further steps to be taken or may suggest a particular archive to be contacted or fund that may be of interest. In many cases, distant relatives have been able to locate each other via our forum because one of them posted information about a common ancestor. On the Jewish Roots Forum, we will be happy to help you join their ranks, in spite of potential language barriers. Below, you will find an abridged version of the forum’s rules, as well as rules applicable only to this specific subform.

1.1. the Table of Family Names, an alphabetical index being researched by forum members
