JewishGen in Announcement with Ancestry.com and AJJDC #general
Warren Blatt <wblatt@...>
JewishGen is proud to announce an arrangement between JewishGen,
Ancestry.com (The Generations Network, Inc.) and the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (AJJDC), to provide access
to the world's largest online collection of Jewish family records.
All the particulars of agreement between JewishGen and Ancestry.com
were announced at the IAJGS Conference in Chicago last summer.
Ancestry.com announced yesterday that a collection of records >from
the Joint Distribution Commitee was added to their website.

I invite all of you to take a look at this collection by going to the
JewishGen.org website and searching your surnames through the box on
the top of the page for Ancestry.com. All of the JewishGen and Joint
Distribution Committee records are free and will continue to be so.
Finally, we are in the midst of the re-hosting of our servers.
The re-hosting will provide you with better service. This is a
process which may take several weeks, and you may notice interruptions
in access to JewishGen. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We will continue to update you on our progress.
