Who Lived In Your Ancestral House'

In the 4th book of the Torah, Bemidbar, Moses is instructed by 0-d to "Take a census of the
whole Israelite community by the clans of its ancestral houses, listing the names, every male, head
by head."Jewish descent has remained constant through the centuries — traced through a person's
IC HIGAN
father.
Here in the Detroit area, members of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Michigan are in-
vestigating these links to the past, to their ancestral houses — their mishpachah. The Society, founded in 1983, functions
to educate its members in how to collect family historical/genealogical data and to create a wider interest in genealogy
in the Jewish community.
Our members are researching their ancestral shtetls in Poland, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Germany, as well as in
the United States and Israel. Although most of our research is done by mail, some members have been to Poland and
Russia for a first-hand look at what their ancestors considered their "home town." Our members collect a wealth of
material here in the U.S., such as first papers and census records. We also collect data in Israel and Poland (where records
were thought not to exist).
We meet bi-monthly and share our successes and failures. We have experts and authors speak on genealogy. We take
field trips to investigate what records are available or can be ordered. For example, two years ago we mef at the Burton
Wing of the Detroit Public Library. In 1987, we toured the LDS Genealogical Library in Bloomfield Hills. The library
has indexes to over six million rolls of microfilm, much of it Jewish and European in origin. Primarily we share with
each other and provide advice on how to proceed when one's own research appears to be at a dead end.
We publish a newsletter three times yearly. The newsletter is filled with ideas on how to research, who to write, and
what to look for. It contains articles and material published by other U.S., Israeli, and European Jewish genealogical groups.
We would be happy to share our knowledge with you. Call either our Membership Vice President, Barbara Koltonow
at 851-7575, or our President, Stanley Finkelstein, at 557-2624 for information. Our first meeting of the year is September
10th, so don't delay!
