Please do not limit your contributions to the New York City area...
there are other major centers that have collections of interest to those
researching their family genealogical histories. Two major ones are as
follows, which might also be interested in copies of your material:

Holocaust Memorial Center
28123 Orchard Lake Road,
Farmington Hills, MI 48334

for those who cannot get to New York City? I know I do my research
there, in Michigan, >from here in Toronto, if the data is not available
here in Toronto.

And to the

Ekstein Library [in Toronto]
Sherman Campus
4600 Bathurst Street, 4th Floor
North York, Ontario Canada

The Frank and Anita Ekstein Holocaust Resource Collection

The Frank and Anita Ekstein Collection consists of nearly nine thousand
volumes of books and an array of films, pedagogical materials and oral
and written testimonies.

Holocaust survivor testimony on DVD can be viewed in our library. Our
extensive collection consists of sixty-five recordings >from the Shoah
Visual History Foundation and 400 of the CentreĆ¢??s own digital recordings
(transcriptions are also available).

To research the collections please contact:
Anna Skorupsky, Librarian at 416.635.2996 or

Give a copy to the Center for Jewish History! 15 W 16th Street, New
York. Home of the Leo Baeck Institute (German Jewish history), YIVO
(for Eastern European Jewish research), the American Jewish Historical
Society and the American Sephardi Federation (plus the Yeshiva U
museum). Their archive will gladly accept a family's materials, whether
as copies or originals; will respect conditions placed on access; and
can handle updates and additions. Huge amounts of material are already
available in their digital archive, and there's more coming all the time.
Even if you don't have it all organized yet, putting a copy there can't
hurt while you're deciding what else to do.
By the way, Leo Baeck Institute archivist (and friend of GerSIG) Michael
Simonson was featured in a New York Times article on archives and
archivists in NYC just the other week.
