The Northeast Indiana Jewish Genealogy Society is pleased to host Dr. Elizabeth Anthony for two presentations on Sunday, May 5 and Monday, May 6. She is the International Tracing Service and Partnerships Program Manager at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
The ITS collections became available in Germany and at digital copy-holding institutions around the world in November 2007. This service is a valuable resource for researchers interesting in studying issues focused on victims of Nazi persecution.
These presentations will give attendees an introduction to the ITS collections and their function, and are generously supported by the Dr. Harry W. Salon Foundation, the PFW Institute for Holocaust & Genocide Studies, the University of St. Francis, and the Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center.
On Sunday, May 5, Dr. Anthony will speak about the use of the ITS to find victims of the Nazis. This Northeast Indiana Jewish Genealogy Society program will be held at 2 p.m. at the Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center and is open to the public.
On Monday, May 6, she will present a similar program at 3 p.m. at the University of St. Francis Downtown Business Center, 826 Ewing St. Irv Adler, president of the NEIJGS and a Temple member, will be part of this presentation as well. He will explain how he used the ITS database to find the last surviving member of his Viennese family.
