With TV shows such as Who Do You Think You Are and websites including JewishReunion, there's never been greater interest in genealogy.
Jewish people of course, just like many other communities are always keen to find out more about their background and who their relatives were.
Now, the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain has published a 146 page book that provides a resource for finding out more about British Jewish roots.
Written by Rosemary Wenzerul, the book is a fantastic introduction and guide. It is well written and offers useful phone numbers, addresses and other tools of the trade that can help you discover more of your past.
From synagogues and cemeteries to public record offices, it should serve as a useful starting point for anyone keen to find out a bit more about their family.
Even if you are not interested in your own family, the book serves as the perfect introduction to Jewish Britain with details of synagogues and other places you may like to visit and find out more about.
Priced at just £5.95 it is a real bargain, especially as it will save you much time in tracking down the people, organisations and websites you need to go to in order to trace a family name.
