Welcome into Jewish Roots, Joann!!! Bob has returned from vacation and adventure recently. I'm glad you're in. If you peruse Jewish Roots Project in G2G, you'll find many of the people who've joined us, talking about their searches and their questions. Ask and we will all chime in to the best of our knowledge and skills.
G2G is like a primer for finding and for avoiding that feeling of being blocked. We all have both frequently if we're active.
