to my blog on the Jews of the Gold Rush. I am just emerging from several months of research on this topic, some of which will be included in an Avotaynu source book for Jewish genealogical research in the United States that will be published next year.

I have been collecting documentation and photographing the headstones of Gold Rush pioneer cemeteries, and will begin to post these, along with historical background on the Jewish presence in the mining towns of the Gold Country.

Thanks for visiting!
