      Discover how genealogical detective skills have been used to  find and reconnect family members who have lost contact over the years.


      Valery Bazarov will provide a brief overview of the history of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society from 1881 until present day. HIAS was instrumental in bringing some four million Jews to the United States:  From the first flood of Eastern European Jews in the 1880s to the rescuing of the last Jews of Iraq during the Gulf War. HIAS worked in Nazi-occupied territories to organize rescue operations during the Holocaust, relocated thousands of displaced Jews after World War II, and assisted the massive exodus of Soviet Jewry in the 1970s. He will explain the scope of the HIAS and YIVO archives and the steps necessary to make use of this valuable resource.



      Valery Bazarov has been the Director of Family History and Location Services for the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society since 2000, helping generations of immigrants, family members, and friends - often in other countries - find those with whom they have lost contact over the years. Valery is also committed to finding and honoring the heroes, Jewish and non-Jewish, who rescued European Jews during the Holocaust. Valery Bazarov researches HIAS history and presents his findings in lectures and publications, and is a frequent lecturer at national and international conferences on Jewish genealogy. Valery is chairman for the Seminar on Jewish Genealogy for Russian Speaking Jews and for the Genealogy Club of Jewish Americans. His greatest aspiration has been to gather HIAS archival records, outside of the main collection in New York, which are scattered from Warsaw, Poland to Sydney, Australia.
