My foray into family history started as a bit of a challenge and grew into a family pastime that Danielle and I enjoyed.

I started reading up and began to realise that as a Jewish family living in the UK it may be very difficult tracing distant relatives due to the history and movement of Jews in the past. In the small family I already knew, we knew very little about our great grandparents. What surprised me even more is that after a short time say 30 years, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews lose track of their family and in some cases never see that part of their family again. So became a quest to find about about these people and pass on what we collect.

We would like to collate and research each direct family branch in as much detail as possible by adding as much information that still exists photographs, documents and most of all your memories. Having only started recently, I am amazed how much stuff is available in the public domain.

The collection was built with the help of many cousins, uncles, aunties and friends

Look through your lofts, attics and closets! check the garage and anywhere else for old letters, documents, photographs etc time is running out as valuable family history information that can be copied and shared may be rotting away.  You may have packed up a beloved relatives belongings when they passed away and have not gone through it since then.
