In this issue: Di Edelman outlines a fascinating family story in The WACHMANs – three Lithuanian Jewish families – obviously connected but how? Can you help solve this family mystery?; Evelyn Frybort shares her experience of touring China, with a Jewish flavour; and Dianne Johnstone recounts her moving experience of "hearing the voice" of her 3rd great grandfather when she had the chance to view original letters written over a century ago. All this plus news, links and workshop dates.

Introducing the AJGS Blog!

AJGS is pleased to announce the launch of our blog.

The AJGS blog will extend our newsletter's tradition and highlight interesting stories, links and discoveries from the world of Jewish Genealogy in a timely and searchable format. It will NOT replace the Kosher Koala Newsletter, which will continue to be published.

We hope both the AJGS blog and Kosher Koala will help us help you with your genealogical detective work by sharing the most interesting and useful stories from around the world with you and by sharing your stories with our members. 

We love to highlight the hard work and well deserved success of our members so let us know your success story. If you've had a breakthrough or have found a new resource you would like shared with other members please don't hesitate to get in touch with us at

Some back issues of Kosher Koala are available HERE.
