Routes to Roots Foundation, Inc.



During 30+ years of traveling in Belarus, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland and Ukraine, I have acquired a large collection of archive inventories, document copies, name lists, cemetery/burial lists, photographs and antique postcards (synagogues, Jewish cemeteries, Holocaust memorials, town views along with the thousands of photos I have taken in towns throughout Eastern Europe). I have also acquired a significant number of books, journals, town booklets/pamphlets from the foregoing countries as well as here in the United States, much of which I am in the process of placing in various institutions, libraries and archives here in the United States.

Additionally, I have contributed quantities of my own books, Jewish Roots in Poland and Jewish Roots in Ukraine and Moldova to various organizations and institutions in the U.S. as well as the relevant archives in Eastern Europe.
