The Klionsky.org web site has been created to serve as a family resource and online "gathering place" with the following goals in mind:
- Learn about our family history through the family tree charts, historical accounts of the family's beginnings and stories about family members of past and present generations.
- Establish a source of family pride for current and future generations.
- Keep track of family members and keep abreast of family news through shared announcements of important family events.
- Promote family connections and friendships.
- Present a means of finding and connecting with new (previously unidentified) family members.
- Resolve unsolved "puzzles" on the family tree (names and dates of ancestors, for example, or how different branches are connected).
- Honor our parents, grandparents and all our ancestors, many of whom made courageous decisions that led to better lives for themselves and their families.
- Memorialize those from our family who perished in the Holocaust.
- Provide a means for future generations to learn about their history and remain connected to the family.
