Douglas E. Goldman Jewish Genealogy Center[edit | edit source]

"The Douglas E. Goldman Jewish Genealogy Center is the only center of its kind in the world. At the Center, visitors can search a computerized database containing thousands of genealogies of Jewish families from all over the world and can also register their own family trees.

Throughout history, Jewish families migrated from place to place, often leaving behind family heirlooms, memorabilia, and records. Documentation of their previous lives was often lost, preserved only in their memories. Today, families can record precious information and family history at the Douglas E. Goldman Jewish Genealogy Center, preserving this vital material for generations to come.

Over 5 million individuals have already been recorded in the continuously expanding database. Visitors from all backgrounds can explore their ancestry, record and preserve their own family trees for future generations, thus adding their own “branch” to the family tree of the Jewish People.

Registering your family history at the Center has added benefits. Once your information is recorded, it may elicit connections with other registered users. In fact, you may discover unknown, exciting family ties with other people or families around the world." Source: Museum of the Jewish People
