recently i’ve been attempting to unravel the very tangled web that is my fathers (ashkenazi) side of the family. it’s been disheartening and difficult and since there is much angst on that side of the family i haven’t been able to get a single lead on anything past my great grandmother. i’ve always wanted to know where in Europe we came from but much of my family on that side is dead and i’m beginning to lose hope of ever discovering where exactly i came from. does anyone have any advice or websites that can help or have worked for you??
(also if this isn’t the right sub for this i completely understand i was simply wary of potential hate from others on more well suited subreddits)
