Our Family Tree,
starting with Chaim Yehoshua Dumesh and Scheina-Freida Nowoselok (Sadie Silk) Dumes.
Included on the family tree pages are various tools, for example:
How is this person related to me?
Who are this person's cousins?
Who are this person's descendants?
Who are this person's ancestors?
Do we have pictures of this person?
Do we have movies of this person?

Our Family Photos!
All branches of the family are represented in these photos. Look for the
tools available for viewing the photos. Click on the small photo to see a larger
version. From there, you can go the next or prior picture, or view the picture
"full size". You can also access some tools which will allow you to see links for
each person identified in the photo and a link to their family tree page.

Annotated Family Photos
These are group photos in which everyone in the photo is identified. The names
are also clickable links; clicking on them brings up the family tree page for
that person, so you can learn more about them! Looking through these is a great way of learning about the family at different times.

Family Photos Slideshow
These are the same photos that you can see in the family photos collection, but this
script will animate a slideshow for your viewing pleasure. As when viewing the photos
in the family photos page, you can narrow your selection by a specific collection,
a specific person, a date range, and other factors.
Take me to the slideshows!
Like the photos, every branch of the family is represented in these movies. Check them out! But you need to be logged in to access these. These movies are a real treasure. It was a huge task digitizing them, but
so worth it. We are incredibly lucky to have them.
Take me to the family movies!
