Yesterday, we completed our 2011 update of the JewishGen Holocaust Database. More than 36 new collections - totaling more than 200,000 records - have been added.
As always, we are grateful to the kind support from so many individuals, Jewish genealogical societies, historical societies, museums, and other organizations who enbaled us to acquire these valuable records.
Of particular note, the work of Nolan Altman (our Holocaust Database coordinator) should be applauded. The Holocaust Database would not be what it is without his tireless, and sensitive efforts.

Finally, as you can see, we are doing great work, but it costs a significant amount of money to maintain JewishGen. Please help (if you have not already done so) by contributing generously to JewishGen’s fall appeal so that we can continue to offer you, and thousands of others like you, these essential services.
Your generous donation of any amount - whether it's $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more - will make an immediate difference. As in previous 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.
JewishGen has accomplished much - but there is still so much more to do, and we thank you for helping us "preserve our history for future generations."
