Recovery & Repair: Family History Research Workshop

May 24 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

The Search Bureau for Missing Relatives was created in 1945 by the Jewish Agency for Palestine to help relatives find each other. It published lists of names in a weekly bulletin called “To the Near and Far” and broadcast names over the radio. 1957 © Central Zionist Archive.

This is an in-person event taking place at the Manchester Jewish Museum.

Part of the Library’s Recovery & Repair: Supporting Jewish Family Histories of the Holocaust in Britain ITS event series.

The Wiener Holocaust Library is home to the UK’s International Tracing Service digital archive, which holds millions of documents related to the Holocaust and Nazi era. The archive preserves the shared past of victims and survivors of the Holocaust and helps support family research of Nazi persecution.

We welcome historians, archivists, family historians, heritage practitioners, and anyone interested in Jewish and Holocaust history and its aftermath.

This workshop will help you take the first steps in conducting your own family research using the International Tracing Service digital archive, including using sources freely available online. Join our ITS Archive Team Manager, Elise Bath and ITS Researcher Ian Rich as they demonstrate the uses of this important archive.

The workshop will also feature family research support services available from Manchester-based partner organisations, soon to be announced.

Participants will also have the chance to sign up for one-on-one consultations with The Wiener Holocaust Library’s expert researchers.
