*New* Knowles Collection and Other Jewish Resources on FamilySearch.org


While searching on FamilySearch.org tonight, I noticed that they have a new resource available for Jewish Genealogy records, helps and hints. The Knowles Collection containing information regarding thousands of Jews from the British Isles is now available for viewing as a PAF (Personal Ancestral File) file or can be downloaded as a GEDCOM for those that do not use PAF. The Knowles collection contains 12,696 names and 25 pedigrees. The Library also commented that they will be adding names to this database on a continuous basis. The Family History Library has also developed a new in depth guide for Jewish Research and revised the Jewish Genealogy Research Outline.

If you are interested in the Knowles Collection click here and you will directed to FamilySearch.org Jewish Genealogy Resources page.

*Please note you will need Adobe Reader to view both the Research Guide and Research Outline.*
