Genealogy is the study of the history of particular families, who may or may not have had prominent members. Jewish genealogy is the study of the history of families who were Jewish, or are descended at least in part form Jewish families. Because Jews were kept separated from the mainstream of society in many countries until the late 19th century, and excluded from specific occupations, and because they had their own religious institutions, records and cultures, families with Jewish ancestry can, at least in part, be studied through archival documents that were not created for other groups. Similarly, some records that are common for majority groups, like Baptismal Records, do not exist for Jews. As a result, a separate branch of Genealogy, called Jewsih Genealogy, has developed in which researchers can learn about and specialize in the records and cultural clues that are of particular relevance to Jews.
