My latest feature story

This one's on the cover of the new issue of the World Jewish Digest.

It's about how families are using the internet to find relations they thought were lost in the Holocaust, or descendents of those relations. It was fascinating (and emotionally difficult) to research. I'm pretty proud of the way it came out.

Meanwhile, I did my own internet searches using the databases I learned about in the course of the research, and learned new information about my great-grandparents and great-uncle. I also may have found distant cousins with whom my family has been out of touch for several decades. More info if anything materializes!

P.S. As you can see, I survived 48 hours of babysitting! (Just barely.)
