Below you will find links to articles that I have written for different publications on genealogy topics as well as articles from my blog, Layers of the Onion that addresses issues I've encountered in my research.

At the Boston IAJGS genealogy conference in 2013, I attended a session by Ellen Cassedy and Lois Ogilby Rosen on how literature, both fiction and nonfiction, can inform our genealogy research.  You can read about the session under Books That Inform Your Search.  That discussion inspired me to combine the portion of my reading list focused on Jewish genealogy, both fiction and non-fiction, with the list that was provided by the speakers and other readers.  You can download a copy of it.

A separate listing of websites and books that I find helpful is available as well. For additional resources please check the Resources page on the Minnesota Jewish Genealogical Society. You can find it at mnjgs.org.
