Genealogy Collections in the Center for Jewish History’s Archives – Virtual
November 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Presenter: Moriah Amit, Senior Genealogy Librarian
The Center for Jewish History in New York houses the largest archive of the modern Jewish experience outside of Israel, illuminating the history and culture of Jewish communities around the world. Among the Center’s collections are many items that can provide information about your ancestors and ancestral towns – including the records of Jewish orphanages in New York, Jewish immigrant aid organizations in the U.S., and Jewish communities throughout Germany — a significant portion of which can now be viewed online. In this session, Moriah Amit will highlight the collections of greatest value to Jewish genealogists and demonstrate how to access them.
