News item from The Forward

Department of self congratulation ➤  The Forward got a grant from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies to partner with JewishGen to find, translate and publish records from our “Seeking Relatives” advertisements. These listings, which ran in our pages between 1920 and 1960, helped Eastern European Jews get in touch with family members in the United States, and helped Holocaust survivors reconnect with missing relatives. Chana Pollack, the Forward’s archivist, will lead the project. Learn more here ➤
