Schelly Talalay Dardashti has created a new Jewish genealogy blog called "Tracing the Tribe." It started last Thursday, coinciding with with the start of the 26th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy (ICJG). The blog will continue after the conference.
I took a look at this new blog. As you might expect with anything new, there aren't many articles there yet. However, the ones that I did see included:
- At the ICJG: Music to our ears
- At the ICJG: Six of the six million
- At the ICJG: Soap star tells how to teach kids via genealogy
- At the ICJG: The eyes have it
- At the ICJG: An army of volunteers
- Requesting help on Romanian roots
- Set in stone
- Got a Chochka?
- Images of the past and present
- Your host
- What to expect from Tracing the Tribe
