The JDC Archives (American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee)has entered
into a partnership with the International Tracing Service (ITS). The
agreement enables the JDC Archives to complement in a digital environment
wartime records which will assist in search efforts for missing relatives.
The first group of digital files are the 30,000 Emigration Service Cards
from the Paris Office of the JDC. The information will be indexed and added
to the JDCs Names Index, which currently has over 100,000 cards >from other
JDC offices.
