Lecture by Megan Lewis of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
Presented by Northeast Indiana Jewish Genealogy Society

Megan Lewis is a well-known reference librarian at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum who will present a lecture about how to use unique genealogical resources to research family history. Source materials from the personal collections of Holocaust survivors and victims, and letters and official documents such as passports and diplomas, extensive photograph archives, and oral histories can provide clues about how to trace Holocaust victims, survivors, and family members.

This event is part of the Violins of Hope - Fort Wayne project. Find more information here.
