“Online Resources for Jewish Genealogy in Chicagoland: What’s New?” Genealogy has changed dramatically in the last 20 years with a very high percentage of important records being indexed in online databases, or the records themselves having become searchable and available online. Today’s Chicago Jewish genealogy researcher has access to vital records, and cemetery, naturalization, census, and many other documents online.
