The Lewis Family Tree Project


Begun seriously in 1986 as a bar Mitzvah project for my eldest son, Daniel, we started with about 600 names gleaned entirely from the memories of my late mother, Elizabeth "Bessie" Lewis nee Isaacs and my mother-in-law, Evelyn Chenkin nee Freedman and written on scrolls of paper (the first one was some 5 metres long and contained names only - no dates). Today we have nearly 27,000 names thanks to family, friends and the Internet.
