Maybe you, too, are Eligible! State of Israel, Genealogical Research and Locating Owners of "Abandoned Properties: and their Heirs.
Speaker: Attorney Yonatan Kirsch
Fulfilling traditional Jewish values, the Office of the Administrator General of Israel works to locate the owners of unclaimed assets in Israel or their heirs and has been able to substantially increase its activities of late due to developments in genealogy and the proliferation of resources.
Jonathan Kirsch, senior member of the office, will describe the process by which each year, through genealogical research utilizing tools and resources such as archives, websites, social media, databases, records and newspapers, his department is able to reunite hundreds of people with their ancestral property and with each other. Jonathan will bring fascinating examples of how, in the course of international investigations, various items provide key clues enabling identification of property owners, piecing together their family trees and ultimately tracking down their heirs.
