Center for Jewish History to host genealogy program

The Center for Jewish History will host a Zoom presentation, “Ask a Genealogy Librarian,” on Thursday, August 24, 2023 at 5 p.m.

Moriah Amit, Senior Genealogy Librarian, will answer your questions about searching our online catalog, using archival finding aids, and determining what’s available online, as well as those about specific record types or collections. This program is appropriate for beginner and intermediate-level researchers.

The Center for Jewish History houses many unique documents and hard-to-find books that provide information on individuals, families, and places. A few examples include client files of immigrant aid organizations, burial lists of landsmanshaftn (hometown societies) in New York, and books on Jewish history and life in towns and regions across the globe. However, finding items that pertain to your family history can be tricky.

Please send us your most important question by August 7 by replying to your registration confirmation email.
