The Yad Vashem Holocaust Database -- On the Internet
After much anticipation, the Yad Vashem database of Holocaust victims has
finally made its appearance on the Web. Every Jew with ancestors from Central or
Eastern Europe has family who died in the Holocaust; discover what happened
to them using this Internet database which just came online in November. It
contains records of the millions of people who died -- and those who survived.
Our meeting will focus on the features of the new database and how it can lead
you to find information about survivors or their descendants. Our own Teven
Laxer will tell us about finding 10 new cousins, thanks to the Yad Vashem
Join us at our Sunday, January 23 meeting, 10 a.m. Our extensive genealogy
library will be available for your use, and it’s a great time to advance your
family tree research with the help of our members. For more information,
