Dustin Hoffman and Much More

This weeks episode we discuss Finding Your Roots: Map of Stars, with Dustin Hoffman and Mia Farrow. We also discuss Relative Race and the premier of Long Lost Family.

With the research of Dustin’s family, there was  discussion about Jewish genealogy. If you need assistance researching your Jewish ancestors, we recommend An In-Brief Guide to Researching Your Jewish Ancestors.

Hope you enjoy our discussion.

  2. Regarding Dustin Hoffman’s grandmother, I think I found her in the 1940 census in The Jewish Home for the Aged. “United States Census, 1940,” database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KWBJ-T2T : accessed 11 March 2016), Libbe Hoffman, Ward 22, Chicago, Chicago City, Cook, Illinois, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 103-1423, sheet 2A, family , NARA digital publication T627 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 2012), roll 965.
    I also noticed that Harry Hoffman had some siblings on the 1920 and 1920 censuses. Maybe Dustin would want to make a connection with his dad’s siblings or perhaps their descendants.
