FAMILY TREES IN THE LIBRARY
The Library of the JGSGB holds 4 series (A -D) of Family Trees in paper form. C series are physically large trees stored in rolls.
The trees have been submitted by members, former members and non-members. They range from one page without dates or places to documents running to a hundred or more pages, fully annotated and illustrated.
The Society takes no responsibility for accuracy, and suggests that members verify information included in trees.
Surnames occurring at least 3 times in one tree have been indexed alphabetically. When a surname begins with "de", "van", "von", etc it is listed twice: e.g. Waal and de Waal. This also applies to Israeli surnames like Ben Yehuda. However, where only a patronymic is shown, e.g Zvi ben Daniel, it has not been indexed.
In addition to the list of surnames, a further list has been made in numerical order of the A and D series and partially for B series, showing range of dates and key places. Similar lists are being prepared for the rest of B and all C series. Click here for the list of D trees
Future projects include the listing of surnames and trees received in electronic form.
If you would like to submit a new tree or update to an existing one, please follow the guidelines for submitters.
Trees may be submitted in paper or electronic form to JGSGB Library at 33 Seymour Place London W1H 5AP
