Ancestry Jewish Family History Collection

10:11:41 From Cousin Russ : Ancestry – Jewish collection http://www.ancestry.com/jewish


10:14:19 From Cousin Russ : JewishGen http://www.ancestry.com/cs/jewishgen-all

10:17:33 From Samantha Kleinman Cole to All panelists : When searching within the Jewish Family Collection, the results that are generated back…are they also included in the generic search. So for example, if I do a normal search for say my great grandfather, will it also pull records from the specific collection or is it a separate index? [NOTE: The collection is integrated with the other Ancestry collections. Some are available for free, others require membership with Ancestry.com.]
