     Genealogical.com (Genealogical Publishing Company) is pleased to announce the release of Genealogy at a Glance. Finding Eastern European Jewish Ancestors, by Janette Silverman. Finding Eastern European Jewish Ancestors is the latest title in the Genealogy at a Glance series of laminated research aids. This guide is intended as an aid to researchers who are searching for Ashkenazic Jewish ancestors from Eastern Europe who immigrated to the United States primarily between 1880 and 1924.

     Researchers face many difficulties when trying to identify their Ashkenazic ancestors. For example, since the majority of Ashkenazic immigrants likely changed either their given name or their surname after arriving in the United States, locating them in record sources is particularly challenging. Pinpointing an Ashkenazic ancestor’s hometown is likewise a challenge, since over time some Eastern European countries ceased to exist, had lands ceded to other countries or encountered border changes, or had town names that were known by different names in different languages

     Professional genealogist and author Janette Silverman tackles these and other difficulties and then offers concrete advice on how to overcome these difficulties. In just four, laminated pages, she conveys everything you need to know to get your research started—the most helpful databases and reference works, as well as the major record sources, repositories, and online resources. Identifying Ashkenazic immigrants is challenging, but with this Genealogy at a Glance guide at your side, the task will become much easier.

     Genealogy at a Glance. Finding Eastern European Jewish Ancestors retails for $9.95 and can be ordered directly from Genealogical.com, by clicking on the following link:
