Learn How to Get the Most Out of Your Research at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum

Next Sunday, October 18, 2015 at 3pm, the Center for Jewish History will be hosting a very useful presentation for all those interested in Holocaust-related research at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum holds millions of pages of documents about individuals and communities lost in the Holocaust. However, conducting research at the Museum can be challenging because of the sheer volume and wide variety of resources available. This program will provide a suggested framework on how to plan research at the Museum using the Collections Catalog available at http://collections.ushmm.org. Megan Lewis, a reference librarian at the Museum, will discuss how to use Archives collections, the Library’s holdings, the International Tracing Service (ITS) records and other resources in family research. The Museum now has much original material available from home, such as over 17,000 hours of oral histories and several dozen archival collections. Both people new to Holocaust research and those who have conducted research at the Museum before will learn tips to make their research smoother. The Center for Jewish History is located at 15 West 16th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues) in Manhattan. For more information, visit their website, http://www.cjh.org/.
