remarkable Core Exhibit.

Since the early planning stages, the Museum realized that there would
be a need for a genealogy component. Jewish Records Indexing – Poland
was involved in conversations with the Museum throughout the
planning. In April 2014, this culminated in an 8-year agreement
to jointly promote research and to educate those interested in
learning about their family history and the rich and historic culture
of Polish Jewry.

As a result, the Resource Center at the Museum will have especially
rapid access to the JRI-Poland database and website. Museum staff
and JRI-Poland volunteers will educate visitors, respond to their
questions regarding the database, and provide guidance to Museum
visitors on the next steps they can take in their research of family
roots in Poland.

The database search and search results will be available in both
Polish and English. Educational materials will be available in
Polish, English, Hebrew, French, and Spanish.

During the Grand Opening period of October 27 through October 30,
JRI-Poland Board Members Michael Tobias and Mark Halpern will be
in the Resource Center to help visitors in starting their family
history research. The Resource Center and JRI-Poland will also have
Polish speakers available to help. Representatives >from Gesher
Galicia will also be available at the Resource Center.

If you are in Poland during this period, please stop by and visit
JRI-Poland representatives at the Museum’s Resource Center.
