FindMyPast offers the "single best resource you may not be using". The PERiodical Source Index (PERSI) enables you to easily locate key information about people and places. It contains over 2.5 million entries from thousands of historical, genealogical and ethnic publications, making it an invaluable, comprehensive family history resource.
PERSI provides a simple way to access articles, photos, and other material you might not find using traditional search methods. This can help to build the historical context around your personal research, and the world your ancestors lived in.
Most of PERSI’s articles are from periodicals covering the United States and Canada, but you can also find thousands of genealogy and local history entries (in both English and French) from Britain, Ireland and Australia.
IGRA celebrates International Jewish Genealogy Month! The first lecture in our series was on the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) by Nolan Altman. This webinar explores the importance of patronymics and how headstones are one of the best sources for this information. You’ll have a chance to get to understand the JOWBR site, how it works, what it includes and go through a sample search. This is geared to those with minimal experience but all will come away with new insights.
The video can be found on the Israeli Jewish Genealogical Society's website.
