A Place Where Our Family Lived - Genealogy at the Jewish Historical
Institute in Warsaw


For over twenty years, the Jewish Genealogy & Family Heritage Center at the
Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw has been assisting
families >from all over the world to discover their roots in Poland and
offer a new point of view on the family story. During the presentation,
Mr. Silberberg will give a brief history of the institute and his
department's work, discuss myths and obstacles in genealogical research
in Poland and how it is possible to overcome them.


Noam Silberberg is a genealogist at the Jewish Genealogy & Family Heritage
Center at the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw.
Originally >from Israel, Noam followed his own family history back to Warsaw,
where he combines his two biggest passions - history and music.

at the Edlavitch DCJCC on March 21-22. Consultations are free of charge but
subject to pre-registration and should be scheduled by emailing him at
this email address <familyheritage@jhi.pl> Information about these meetings
