This lecture will cover the main sources of material that can be used to research Jewish families in the UK. Special emphasis will be given to records specific to Jewish research as well as other materials of more general interest to immigrant families. Some guidance will be given on extending your research into countries in Central and Eastern Europe as well as Holocaust materials. The special challenges of Jewish naming conventions and Border changes will also be considered.
