A genealogist is only as good as his or her knowledge of what informational resources are available and how to use them. Listed below are hyperlinks to many web sites that may be vital to you in your quest for answers to the questions you have about your family's history. Also included on this list are links to various sites that are dedicated to particular shtetls or cities, mostly in Eastern Europe. There also non-genealogical links included below that might be of interest, especially those that are linked to the many Jewish museums that exist throughout the world. Please report any broken links to postmaster@museumoffamilyhistory.com.
