I apologize for some confusion I have had about which thread of mine was open; it seems like this one is (I was trying to get rid of one with grammatical errors in the title).
Thank you very much for the two replies I have gotten thus far.
Yichusdik, these are wonderful suggestions and offer me good places to start. If only my Mom Mom and great aunt were still alive; I have so many questions for them, and they passed away when I seven and about ten. I also appreciate the Hebrew and Yiddish translations, as I only know a little bit of each language.
Mik5, I have heard of Chabad-Lubavitch, but I am not familiar with their particular beliefs and practices. I am interested in learning more about all of the ways of living a Jewish life.
Thank you again all for these very helpful suggestions and for taking the time to explain these things to me!

Sorry for the error in the title line. I replayed with an edited title.
