AJGS maintains a database of members research interests, called the Family Finder, so we can connect those with similar interests together. This might help you find valuable information about your family and may even connect you to long lost cousins!
Family Finder data is only available to AJGS members. Please see our Privacy and Disclaimer Statement on the ABOUT US page for more information.
JewishGen also has a Family Finder available to registered JewishGen members. This family finder has global reach and may assist you in connecting with researchers with similar interests from around the world.
