JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Yiddish records, archivist technology, and its relation to genealogy #general


Jerome Seligsohn <jselig1315@...>
 

I have paid a visit in person to YIVO [Center of
Jewish History] to address the most important issue of
the care of Yiddish artifacts.
Archivist know how and technology is the cdenter of
YIVO practice. Their sound archivist, Lorin Sklamberg,
[LSklamberg@yivo.cjh.org] is devoted to the care and
presentation of Yiddish records. 78's are kept in
acid-free envelopes.Temperature and humidity controls
are in use.
YIVO also is in cooperation with the Library of
Congress in this area.
I have profiteed for years working for Jewishgen in the
YIVO archives and rely heavily on the cooperation of
Leo Greenbaum [212 294 6145] for my work on
landsmanshaften. Please leave our artifacts in the
proven hands of YIVO.
