JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: 118-year-old Yiddish newspaper "The Forward" (Forverts) to be digitized, made searchable #general

According to an anonymous Jewish Studies professor who has done
considerable research on and in the Forverts, "there are no
birth/death/marriage announcements in the Forverts. Obits appear
if the person was well known, but that's it. There are lots of
'searching for relatives' notices throughout the existence of
the paper."

Until the Forverts is fully digitized, the YIVO Institute at the
Center for Jewish History has the complete run (>from August 30
1897 to December 2014) on microfilm (call number: 1977-Y-1130).
