Museum of Family History


Founder and Director, Steven Lasky

The Museum of Family History is an virtual (Internet-only), multimedia, and interactive creation that was designed for those of us who are interested in learning more about modern Jewish history, as well as those who were a part of this history, who now grace the many branches of our family tree. The Museum, which operates independently, humbly attempts to honor the Jewish people and the Jewish family unit in particular.

Through various exhibitions of sight and sound, the Museum strives to keep the memories of our ancestors fresh in our minds, while at the same time allowing us to learn more about the historical events that might have touched and shaped their lives, and subsequently our own. Through first-hand accounts, we learn of both their struggles and their triumphs, and through this awareness we perhaps gain some understanding of the world in which they lived.

Here are just some of the major features of the Museum of Family History.
