Jewish Genealogy Research in the USA for Immigrants from Eastern Europe & the Russian Empire
As a professional genealogist I specialize in and have a passion for helping others trace their Jewish roots from port of departure in Eastern Europe and the Russian Empire through port of arrival and subsequent years in America. As a graduate of Columbia University with a Master's Degree in Social Work ('81), I now use my social work experience when assisting people with research and compiling details of their family histories.
Research in the USA includes ship passenger lists, naturalizations, US census records, vital records, city directories and help for beginners. I have regular access to an LDS Family History Center and National Archives, Northeast Region. Although some Eastern European records are available in the USA, for record research in repositories outside of the USA, please contact a different researcher.
