    Dear fellow family historians,

    I have been working on an extensive family history. April 2018, this opus was placed on the website of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM). But through a
    change in servers, the work became unavailable with the original URL. It is now
    available again as a PDF in all its lengthy glory. Its current length is 627.9 MB,
    so it takes a while to download. It took me 1 minute and 14 seconds to download to
    my computer. Here is the new URL https://digitalarchive-assets.ushmm.org/pdf/bib261529_001_001.pdf

    The Table of Contents shows you those chapters that are in various states of incompletion and not yet available (NA) on the web site.

    Briefly, the material covered are: my parents and my origins in Prague and Vienna,
    our escape from Europe after 20 months as refugees primarily in France,
    my assimilation and education in the US, my family history research in the
    last couple of decades that has reconnected me to my family roots in Bohemia and Galicia, and my discovery of the tragic losses of family in the Holocaust. I
    welcome any comments, critiques, errata, etc.
