When we were looking into my grandmothers genealogy, my daughter typed her maiden name in a goggle search. It led us to several Jewish surname database links. At first we thought it was a mistake. As all my life, all I knew was that on my father's side , we were Polish. We started the search over. We got the same results. My grandfather who was alive at the time, knew absolutely nothing about my deceased grandmother's genealogy. They were married over 50 years. Since that time we discovered websites such as this one, we found hundreds of people with the same surname as hers. Some of them on Yad Vashem.
We also found a book titled " Suddenly Jewish " that assisted our understanding of our new journey.
The next step for us in the process of confirming Jewish genealogy was the DNA test through DNA Consultants. First my dad took one. He had one; Jewish 3 marker. I decided to take one as well and it revealed 2 Jewish markers, one of which matched his. We are still in the process of discovery, but are grateful for what we have been able to learn thus far. Websites such as these have helped to bring about tremendous change for our family, and for future generations. :D

Hi, Thanks for your vote of confidence. This has become a familiar story to us at DNA Consultants. Not everyone, however, has been as enthusiastic in accepting the evidence. It is indeed a life changing experience, for generations of the family. Jewish Gen is also a great place to search, and you can search for variants through its phonetic search system. They also have extended family trees. You must register first to use it, but you can put your own tree in and receive notifications when other researchers see your information and write to you.
