      A trove of papers and photographs documenting the lives of Holocaust victims
      and survivors is now in a searchable database kept by the American Jewish
      Joint Distribution Committee http://archives.jdc.org/sharedlegacy/. The
      names include notables like Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel and
      former Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, as well as "everyday" people.

      Jewish genealogist-- Linda Cantor, immediate past president of the JGS of
      New York was a volunteer who helped put the names online and found a
      previously unknown relative in the collection.

      The American Joint Distribution Committee will present on both the
      photographs and names database at the 2011 IAJGS Conference on Jewish
      Genealogy hosted by the JGS of Greater Washington (www.dc2011.org). In
      addition, this new database will be available to conference attendees as
      one of the many databases on the Conference Resource Center computers.

      Thank you to Randy Herschaft, Associated Press for alerting me to the story.
