Julius Müller started a nonprofit Jewish family history center based in Prague, the Czech Republic, called Toledot, the Hebrew word for "descendents." The organization's goal is to coordinate genealogy projects, develop Jewish genealogy databases and preserve Jewish heritage for future generations. The center offers research tools for people looking for information on their Moravian and Bohemian ancestors.
Toledot's main activity is digitalization. Müller is currently putting a collection of books online from the genealogical organization Jewish Familiants of Bohemia, which contains three generations of descendants from the Czech Republic. There are 170 books from Bohemia and 50 from Moravia. Müller is about halfway through the Bohemian project and has received support from the Jewish Museum in Prague, among other organizations.
