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.
