Searching Historical Directories and More at GenealogyIndexer.org

Sunday, May 06, 2018, 02:00pm - 04:00pm
Contact info@jgsny.org

Speaker: Logan Kleinwaks

GenealogyIndexer.org is a free website for searching 1 million+ pages of historical European directories (business, address, telephone), yizkor books, Galician secondary school reports, military documents, and more. Containing many millions of personal names – often with towns, street addresses, and occupations, and sometimes with vital dates or patronymics – most of the 2,000+ sources are not searchable elsewhere. This talk will focus on recently added sources and new search functionality. The use of directories in the Warsaw property restitution process will also be discussed briefly. Recipient of the IAJGS 2012 Award for Outstanding Contribution to Jewish Genealogy via the Internet and one of Family Tree Magazine's 101 Best Websites for 2015-2017.
