Helping you climb your family tree,


  1. Very interesting and informative. Well done!

  2. I found this really interesting as I nothing of Jewish genealogy

  3. Finding the information on the Eastern European ancestry is not that easy indeed. No matter what the ancestors' religion was.

  4. This was so interesting! I had always heard that we had Jewish ancestors but I couldn't find anything about them. For a long time I blamed the system and the lack of records but, as I did more research, it turns out I'm simply not Jewish and assumptions had been made based on geography.

    1. Very interesting! Thanks for sharing and for watching!
