Help Preserve our History for Future Generations

Dear Friend,

We share a common goal - preserving our Jewish family history for future generations.


Over the past year, we added more than 1 million records to our databases, including more than 200,000 new entries for JOWBR (our online burial registry). As you may have noticed, the website redesign that began last June is now 90% complete. Thousands of people make use of our Discussion Groups on a daily basis, and more than 30,000 new users have registered since January 1st of this year. These enhancements allow you and over 400,000 JewishGen users worldwide, to connect and access tools, databases and information in an easy to understand format from the convenience of your home or office.


But we need your help to continue.


Right now, please contribute generously to JewishGen so that we can continue to offer you, and thousands of others like you, this valuable service. (US residents are eligible for 2010 tax deductible benefits on all donations submitted before December 31st.)


Your generous donation of any amount - whether it's $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more - will make an immediate difference.
Gifts of $100 or more will grant you access to enhanced database search capabilities, enrollment in our online genealogy course and other extra features.


Last year, despite the global economic uncertainty, we were able to balance our budget based upon the high level of participation from our users. While we received some donations in excess of $1000 or as little as $5, each gift was significant, and we hope you will help support the important work of JewishGen in any way that you can.

Over the past twenty years, JewishGen has helped forge countless family connections, but time is essential, and there is still so much to do, please help us continue our important mission.


With grateful appreciation,
