12 Years



Dear Friend,

You know how important JewishGen is to researching Jewish family history. In fact, many other people understand this as well, for over the past year, the total collective amount of time users spent on JewishGen amounted to more than 12 Years!

People are continually becoming interested in their Jewish family history, and they are turning to JewishGen. Our statistics show that more than 40,000 new users joined JewishGen last year, and we expect this number to increase next year.  But we need your help to continue offering these resources.

With more than  20 Million records online ( more than 1 million were recently added), and incredibly valuable resources such as the Family Finder and Discussion Groups (used by thousands every day), JewishGen is the premier online resource for Jewish Genealogy - and we are proud to have been responsible for numerous family connections over the past two decades.

Right now, please donate to JewishGen and help us preserve our history for future generations. (US residents are eligible for 2011 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. 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.

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

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:

JewishGen
36 Battery Place
New York, NY 10280
USA

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,

Warren Blatt
Managing Director, JewishGen.org

P.S. YOUR donation WILL make a difference. There remain countless cousins to be connected, aunts to be located and families to be educated about their past, but it is  only with your support that we can continue. Please contribute whatever you are able at this time – current and future generations will appreciate it
