Index to the First Twenty-one Volumes of AVOTAYNU

AVOTAYNU maintains an index to selected articles that have appeared in the first eighteen volumes (1985-2005) of the publication. Only shown are major articles and some excerpts from the sections "From Our Contributing Editors" and "From Our Mailbox." Not shown is the "U.S. Update" column, which is a digest of articles that appeared in publications of the Jewish genealogical societies and special interest groups. The articles in Volume III, Number 4 and many in Volumes IV-XXI, Number 4, were human interest features and, therefore, are not part of the index. Each entry is the title of the article followed by the volume/number/page. Back issues can be purchased for $10 each ($12 outside North America) from Avotaynu, Inc., 155 N. Washington Ave, Bergenfield, NJ 07621. Note: Most earlier back issues are available in photocopy version only. All back issues from 1985-2005 are available on CD-ROM for $99.95 plus shipping. An annual subscription to Avotaynu is $35.00. Subscribe now!
