A Place Where Our Family Lived - Genealogy at the Jewish Historical
Institute in Warsaw

For over twenty years, the Jewish Genealogy & Family Heritage Center
at the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw has
been assisting families >from all over the world to discover their
roots in Poland and offer a new point of view on the family story.
During the presentation, Mr. Silberberg will give a brief history of
the institute and his department's work, discuss myths and obstacles
in genealogical research in Poland and how it is possible to overcome
them.

Noam Silberberg is a genealogist at the Jewish Genealogy & Family
Heritage Center at the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute
in Warsaw. Originally >from Israel, Noam followed his own family
history back to Warsaw, where he combines his two biggest passions --
history and music.

NOTE: Mr Silberberg will be holding two days of genealogical
consultations at the Edlavitch DCJCC on March 21-22. Consultations are
free of charge but subject to pre-registration and should be scheduled
by emailing him at this email address <familyheritage@jhi.pl>
Information about these meetings can also be found on the Edlavitch
DCJCC Facebook page.
