I would like to actually see these temple records from the 1700's posted on line. There are not many early Jewish temple records here and the ones who have them should post actual records. A lot of people claim they have Jewish practicing ancestors with no proof of temple records. Just like I stated before. Many have church records on their ancestors therefor they are Christian not Jewish. Finding a Jewish practicing ancestor is no different than finding church records on your Christian ancestors. You need the paper to back it up since being Jewish is a practice/Religion not a race of people. There are obviously a lot more church records early on than you would find temple records here.
