Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The New York Times reported on March 3 about the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee providing digital access to its treasure trove of archival materials. To read the article go to: http://tinyurl.com/7wc2shw

There will be a searchable index for every document, photograph and record card, an essential tool considering that the Joint's archives contain over 500,000 names and 100,000 photographs. To search the archives go to: http://archives.jdc.org/

Thank you to Paul Silverstone, IAJGS treasurer and IAJGS Public Records Access Monitoring Committee Member to alerting us to the New York Times Article.
