Museum of Family History

The Museum of Family History is a virtual (Internet-only), multimedia, and interactive creation that was designed for those of us who are interested in learning more about modern Jewish history, as well as those who were a part of this history, who now grace the many branches of our family tree. The Museum humbly attempts to honor the Jewish people and the Jewish family unit in particular.

Through various exhibitions of sight and sound, the Museum strives to keep the memories of our ancestors fresh in our minds, while at the same time allowing us to learn more about the historical events that might have touched and shaped their lives, and subsequently our own. Through first-hand accounts, we learn of both their struggles and their triumphs, and through this awareness we perhaps gain some understanding of the world in which they lived.

You, the participant in this often sentimental and nostalgic journey, have the opportunity to view thousands photographs from the past that may stir your imagination. You will at times hear the voices and see film clips of family members that have been gingerly incorporated into some of the Museum's exhibitions.

The museum currently features several exhibitions on East European Jewish history and culture including:
