Description:
In conjunction with the Violins of Hope Fort Wayne program, the Northeast Indiana Jewish Genealogy Society will present "Finding the Lost: The Basics of Holocaust-related Genealogical research." The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum's Megan Lewis will present two programs about Holocaust research, beginning at 2 p.m. at The Genealogy Center at the ACPL:
  • Finding the Lost: Basics of Holocaust-related Genealogical Research
  • Case studies from different parts of Europe
Lewis is a well-known reference librarian in the museum's Library and Archives reading rooms. She will talk about how to use unique genealogical resources to research family history. Source materials from the personal collections of Holocaust survivors and victims, letters and official documents such as passports and diplomas, extensive photograph archives, and oral histories can provide clues about how to trace Holocaust victims, survivors, and family members.
