Website Traces Lives of Jews Worldwide

NEW YORK (AP) - A genealogy Web site is launching what it calls the world's largest online collection of Jewish family history records.

Ancestry.com says its online collection features millions of historic records, including Schindler's List, the names of almost 2,000 Jews saved by a German businessman who employed them. Their story was told in the Oscar-winning 1993 film.

Many of the 26 million documents are online for the first time, from photographs and immigration data to a list of people who died in Nazi concentration camps.
