FamilySearch historian recognized for contributions to Jewish genealogy

Todd Knowles, a FamilySearch British reference consultant and Jewish genealogy specialist who works in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, was recently added to the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain’s Roll of Honour at their annual meeting in London.

Knowles was recognized for his service in the development and publication of resources relating to the Jews of the British Isles. His free online database (search the Knowles Collection by going to histfam.familysearch.org and clicking on "See Community Trees" and scroll down to the "Jewish Families" ) contains linked and sourced entries for more than 100,000 Jews from the British Isles and more than 100,000 Jews from other parts of the world.
