  Guide to Jewish Genealogy in the UK
  This is a very comprehensive guide to locating UK Jewish records. The focus of the book is firmly on locating resources rather than going into detail on the content of records. Particularly useful is the 60 page directory of UK towns which provides details of synagogues, cemeteries and information about when Jews notably settled in the area.
