Donations of Family Archives #general

Our family genealogist, my father's cousin Walter Cohen, left a considerable
archive of the family research he did for our family. The DAN family (which
had a number of name variations, such as DEN and DUNN) originated in the area
of Taurage and Upynas, Lithuania. The descendants of Shraga Phievel DAN,
Solomon DEN, Zalman Eleazer SOLOMOVICH, Gutel HERSHOVITZ, Zalman Labe HERSCH,
Shraga Fivel DAN, Itchak Aizik DEN, Mordcha LEVITAN, Borach LEVITON, Hirsch
Mayer LEVITAN, Shlomo Zalman ZECHMAN, and Dvora Kuperman ROLNICK immigrated
to the United States, South Africa, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany,
and Israel, and Walter organized a number of family reunions between 1980 and
2000.

I acquired the archive of the family >from Walter's nephews and have been
preserving the records. I have also revised the family history with
information that was not then available outside of the records. I think that
it is important to preserve both the family history and the records for
anyone who is interested in the history of the Dan/Den/Dunn family. I am
interested in repositories which have such genealogical records.

If anyone can direct me to the right organizations, that would be greatly
appreciated.
