Subject: German Jewish genealogy library in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia BOOK LIST

From: Beverley Davis <>

Date: Tue, 2 Dec 2014

Way back in July 2007 I submitted the following information to the

German Jewish SIG. In recent weeks there have been messages listing

similar books, and I thought it timely to re-send my original email for

the benefit of our newer list members.

During the 27 years I worked as a volunteer secretary, archivist

genealogist, librarian and research officer for the Australian Jewish

Historical Society (Melbourne, Victoria), one of our members

had in 1990 visited his distant relative in Germany, the late

Gerhard Ballin, and was given a large collection of books specifically

relating to German Jewish genealogy.

      Upon returning to Australia the member very kindly

      donated the 31 books to the AJHSV library, and I have

      listed them below.

        Enquiries should be directed to the Honorary Secretary,

        Australian Jewish Historical Society (Victoria)

        P.O. Box 8420, Armadale, Victoria 3143, Australia.

        email:  <>

Hope this information is of help and interest to members of GerSIG.
