A Guide to Jewish Genealogy in the United Kingdom (Revised 2011)
This new and enlarged publication updates and augments our previous Beginner's Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Great Britain. It is designed specifically with the family historian in mind, (whether or not a beginner) since the majority of information is given under town headings - invaluable for the tourist to the UK.

The Guide includes detailed information about the (Jewish) holdings of the various resource centres throughout the UK (including Archives, Libraries, Museums, Record Offices, Synagogues etc). It has specific sections on using public records, cemeteries, computers in genealogy, medical records, burial records and marriage records. A full list of Jewish cemeteries throughout the United Kingdom is given with information about each. There is a bibliography; where many of the books relate specifically to individual towns.

We trust that this book will help to locate the records for which you are looking.
