View Sample Pages from Each Chapter -- Births,
Marriages and Deaths
There are separate chapters for Births &
Baptisms, Marriages, and Deaths and Burials. Each chapter has introductory comments,
followed by the indexes themselves. Each index is presented in tables on two facing
pages. Information on the participants in the event is presented on the left-hand
page, while dates, source information and comments are presented on the right-hand page.
Entries are numbered consecutively and record numbers are presented on both pages,
making it easy to track one record from the left-hand to right-hand page. The birth
and death indexes are presented in single, alphabetical lists, while marriages are
presented in two alphabetical lists, one for both brides and grooms.

- Genealogical Resources in Southern California,

emphasis on Los Angeles County. Includes libraries and public records offices, with

- Russian Genealogical Resources in American Repositories,
by Ted Gostin.
- Genealogists researching Russian roots have long been frustrated by the relative absence
of Russian genealogical resources available in the west. This book reviews the resources
from the Russian empire that are currently available, and those that are now becoming
available. The topics covered include vital records (in both Polish and Russian formats),
revision lists (tax censuses), Russian business and city directories, the Russian Consular
Records, Russian newspapers, passenger arrival indexes, maps & gazetteers, collected
biographies, encyclopedias, Internet resources, and genealogical societies. Under each of
these topics, the book will have special sections on Jewish-Russian resources.
- The Shtetl Atlas, by Ted Gostin.
- A compilation of street plans of Eastern European shtetls, the small Jewish towns
made famous in Jewish literature and folklore. Using information from a variety of
sources, including published maps, yizkor (memorial) books, encyclopedias, and gazetteers,
detailed street plans of over 400 shtetls are planned. Each map will be accompanied by a
page of basic information about the town and its Jewish community, including a town
history, population statistics, prominent personalities from the town, and its history
during the Holocaust.
