Knowles Collection updated

The six databases that comprise the Knowles Collection continue to grow. Because of this, all of them were updated and the new records made available for people to search for free. The growth in the collection is coming from various sources, most notably cemetery records and family histories that are being donated. The Knowles Collection now has genealogical records for over 800,000 people. The databases and the number of people included is listed below.

   The Jews of North America                                            300,192
   The Jews of Europe                                                         268,279
    The Jews of The British Isles                                          167,930
    The Jews of Africa and The Orient                                 26,428
    The Jews of South America and The Caribbean          19,724
      The Jews of The South Pacific                                         20, 897

The easiest way to search the collection is to visit the Community Trees section of FamilySearch.org. A link is provided at the top of the main page of this blog. That link will take you to the general search page for the databases posted there. That page is below.


Searching this page will search everything posted, however if you simply want to search an individual collection, click on "Advanced Search".




 The drop down box will then allow you to select an individual database.


 In the example below,  I have selected the British Isles tree and asked for all entries that have the surname Gluckstein.


 The results show 144 people with the surname Gluckstein in the British Isles.


 The record below is the results for Samuel Henry Gluckstein. The record also includes his parents, wife and children.


Thank you to all you have donated their own records or helped in anyway.
