Genealogy Research: First American Jewish Families


Acknowledgments | First American Jewish Families

The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives would like to express its profound gratitude to Mr. Rand and Mrs. Beth Curtiss for endorsing this project. It is no exaggeration to say that without their assistance, this effort would not have been possible.

We would also like to thank Mrs. Louise Stern, Dr. Malcolm Stern's widow, who worked alongside him to create First American Jewish Families, a Jewish genealogical classic. She has been entirely supportive of our efforts to make her husband's work available to a larger, world-wide public and to new generation of researchers. We are always deeply grateful for her support.

Thanks go to Mr. Allan Hirsh for his generous donation of 100 copies of First American Jewish Families and for allowing us to reproduce digitally the third edition of this book which his publishing company, Ottenheimer Publishing, produced in 1991.

Finally, the AJA would like to extend a word of thanks to Ms. Karen Franklin for her continuous support of all our genealogical endeavors.
