Memorializing the Jewish communities and learning about their lives and place where they lived is the key to understanding our past. A webpage dedicated to a Jewish community becomes a repository of all the information we can gather about it. It is accessible throughout the world, provides a link from the past to the future and serves as a valuable resource for their descendants. This presentation applies to any place where there was a Jewish community, including Europe, Africa, Asia, Sephardic communities and New Immigrant neighbourhoods. Potential resources and content will be discussed, including: Geography, History, Family Biographies, Holocaust, Landsmanshaftn and Outreach. Advantages for personal research will be described. The PowerPoint presentation, with 81 slides gives detailed examples of the design, lay out, suitable material, sources of information. Examples of webpages will be shown. Several Handouts will be available.
