A Welcome to You from the Museum of Family History


Welcome to the blog for the Museum of Jewish History, a virtual (Internet-only) museum dedicated to preserving the memory of not only Jewish families, but the collective modern history and culture of the Jewish people.

I am currently at the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies conference in Philadelphia, PA. I gave a talk about my museum entitled "A Day at the Museum: Navigating the Museum of Family History." Considering the early hour of the talk (8:15 a.m.), it was well attended and went well.

At my talk I introduced new and upcoming exhibitions as well as new interactive floor plans/maps. You can access these maps via the front page of the Museum's site at . Just look for the links in the right-hand column.

This the second way to navigate the Museum. You might also like to find your way around the museum by using the Site Map page which serves as a table of contents for the site.

If any of you would like to contribute to the Museum, e.g. family photos, text, audio or video, please contact me at .

Stay tuned for mention of upcoming online exhibitions.
