The sale will run from Tu BiShvat until Purim.
I was convinced that this brick wall is not as impenetrable as it seems, at least in some circumstances.
I believe that this book demonstrates that I was correct.
When I decided I wanted to write a book, I was not sure if I wanted
to write a “How to” book or a “How I did it” book. The decision was
dictated by the facts in the field. Different family structures, widely
different numbers of living family members, and other similar factors
dictated that writing “How to” would be irrelevant for most researchers.
“How I did it” is more likely to be helpful to the research community
and more likely to instill the confidence necessary for such a project.
It is my hope that this book will encourage and inspire other
researchers of their European Jewish families and other endogamous
populations to say “I can do this!”
