News Release: Announcement of Miriam Weiner Agreement with JewishGen Belarus SIG #belarus


Nancy Holden
 

The JewishGen Belarus SIG is very pleased to announce a historic a partnership
with Miriam Weiner and The Routes to Roots Foundation. As a result of this
agreement we have received a large amount of material collected by Miriam during
her 20+ years of working in the archives of Belarus.

The material includes numerous archive inventories and copies of archive
documents (with summary translations for much of the material) including
thousands of personal names >from over 50 towns in Belarus as well as links
to/or excerpts >from Miriam's award-winning website.

You can read more about Miriam and the agreement at:

It will take us several months to review and index these materials but we hope to
have the names appearing in at least a few towns indexed and searchable in time
for the IAJGS conference in Seattle in August.
