DNA set us on the right path. Family letters sealed the deal!
Considering the dearth of family history artifacts in my family I sometimes forget that D-N-A are not the only letters in genealogy. So, when Sheldon told me he had a bunch of postcards and letters that had been sent from his...

The Extra Yad
Introduction
I have been researching my own family's history and my father's family town (Lubin or Labun, Ukraine) for several years.

The Extra Yad is a play on English and Hebrew (“Yad” means hand and is the name of the pointer used while reading from the Torah scroll) words reflecting the several realities of my involvement with Jewish genealogy: 
  • my desire to share knowledge and skills, 
  • my realization that one cannot do this kind of research in isolation, and 
  • my willingness to go to great lengths, when needed, to solve a problem.
My KehilaLinks (town) webpage for my family shtetl is at:
