The Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute is home to another invaluable repository of Polish Jewish records, the Jewish Genealogy & Family Heritage Center. Thousands of individuals, from Poland and abroad, turn to the Genealogy Center to help them uncover documents, contact long-lost relatives, or research their ancestral home.
The Genealogy Center is now in the process of making its vast records and services available online. The Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture has provided lead support to develop an interactive website that will facilitate guided genealogical research with online, real-time consultations for lay people and scholars in Poland and worldwide. The Genealogy Center’s collections will also be digitally linked with those of the Institute, giving instant access to the combined records of both organizations.
