In 2010, the American Jewish Historical Society and New England Historic
Genealogical Society launched a collaboration designed to enhance Jewish
historical and genealogical research and the continued collection and
preservation of Jewish History. In 2015, the collaboration was further
strengthened with the permanent deposit of the New England Archives of the
American Jewish Historical Society at New England Historic Genealogical
Society.

The Jewish Heritage Center, with the American Jewish Historical Society -
New England Archives as its cornerstone, has announced it is expanding its
mission to include more educational opportunities, exhibits and programming,
scholarly research and publications, genealogy and expanded community
outreach as they continue to be a resource for exploring and preserving the
histories of Jewish families and institutions in New England and beyond.

They have 1.2 million documents >from the American Jewish Historical
society-New England Archives. To search the digital archives see:
http://digitalcollections.americanancestors.org/cdm/ajhs/. You will have to
create a user name and submit a reference request. To learn more see:

Wondering what your estate should do with your genealogical papers? If you
have New England roots, consider donating them to the Jewish Heritage
Center. If you are looking to organize your family papers and memorabilia
they will professionally process your papers and photographs, how to arrange
for an appraisal and more in getting ready to donate your collection to
them. To read more see: http://www.americanancestors.org/jhc

If you are attending the 36th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy, the Jewish Heritage Center is one of the links available in the
Resource Room computers.

I have no affiliation with the Jewish Heritage Center and am sharing this
information solely for the reader's information.
