Time is Essential...Please Help Support JewishGen

Posted by Warren Blatt

Dear Friend,

As an independent, non-profit organization, we rely on the generous support of users like you to perpetuate the memory and heritage of previous generations. Now more than ever, we need your immediate help to continue offering you the essential services provided by JewishGen. Without your help, we won't be able to continue. 

Over the past year, we added thousands of new records and datasets to our online collection, while simultaneously implementing major improvements to our website design, reliability, speed and capacity. These enhancements allow you and over 350,000 JewishGen users worldwide, to access tools, databases, and information in an easy to understand format from the convenience of your home or office.

With more than four hundred Kahal/ShtetLinks (town) websites, two million burial records, hundreds of Yizkor (memorial) books, millions of vital records, a comprehensive Holocaust database, online genealogy courses, discussion groups, and many other constantly updated resources and tools, JewishGen provides you, and other researchers like you, with the means to discover your family history in ways never before thought possible - all without having to spend countless hours in libraries and archives throughout the world. 

Right now, you can help by contributing generously to JewishGen so that we can continue to offer you, and thousands of others like you, this valuable service.

Your generous donation of any amount - whether it's $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more - will make an immediate difference and help us provide and expand the wide array of services we offer to you and other family researchers throughout the world who so desperately wish to connect with their past and present family heritage. 

Gifts of $100 or more will grant you access to enhanced database search capabilities, enrollment in our online genealogy course and other extra features.

JewishGen has accomplished much, but there remain countless cousins to be connected, aunts to be located and families to be educated. Time is essential and we thank you for helping us continue our important mission. 

Credit Card contributions can be submitted on our secure website by clicking here. If you prefer to donate by check, please make it payable to JewishGen and send it to:

  1. Dear Warren,
    Thanks for all the work you and the staff have done this past year. Without JewishGen, my family would be much smaller.
