Blog type: individual family history, Italian genealogy

Welcome to my blog for and about our Family or anyone who loves Itri and Campodimele, Italy! Entra, siedi e goditi una bella tazza di cafe metre navighi! Come in and sit for awhile! Enjoy a cup of espresso and browse! Read a little history of Itri and of our family. Mostly this blog will concern ourselves about family – and our passions, joys, tears, sadness – as we journey back in time to research our family roots and as we share the joys of our expanding family.

Blog type: individual family history, surnames, UK genealogy

I am a member of the Guild of One Name Studies since 1988 and I have been a member on and off for the last 18 years. I have been researching the name Gronow / Gronnow / Goronwy for the past 24 years, during which time I have built up a considerable database and record of Gronow families across the world, from throughout England & Wales to the outer reaches of Canada and Australia.

museum family history

Museum of Family History

Blog type: Jewish genealogy, libraries and archives

Welcome to the blog for the Museum of Jewish History, a virtual (Internet-only) museum dedicated to preserving the memory of not only Jewish families, but the collective modern history and culture of the Jewish people.

I am currently at the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies conference in Philadelphia, PA. I gave a talk about my museum entitled “A Day at the Museum: Navigating the Museum of Family History.” Considering the early hour of the talk (8:15 a.m.), it was well attended and went well.

At my talk I introduced new and upcoming exhibitions as well as new interactive floor plans/maps. You can access these maps via the front page of the Museum’s site atwww.museumoffamilyhistory.com . Just look for the links in the right-hand column.

This the second way to navigate the Museum. You might also like to find your way around the museum by using the Site Map page which serves as a table of contents for the site.

If any of you would like to contribute to the Museum, e.g. family photos, text, audio or video, please contact me atsteve@museumoffamilyhistory.com. Stay tuned for mention of upcoming online exhibitions.
