Genealogical Resources at the American Jewish Historical Society – Live Event

As stewards since 1892 of the American Jewish experience, legacy, and impact, the American Jewish Historical Society, the oldest ethnic, cultural archive in the United States, holds a remarkable range of resources of interest to genealogists. Tamar Zeffren will present examples of and links for relevant materials, such as records of the Hebrew Orphan Asylum and the National Jewish Welfare Board, Landsmanshaftnrecords, family papers, and other holdings. Participants will learn about the organization and accessibility (in-person and online) of AJHS’ diverse collections and how to navigate and see samples of historical material on AJHS' newly relaunched website

About the Speaker
Tamar Zeffren is the Director of Archival Partnerships at AJHS, where she serves as the dedicated contact for foundations, organizations, and individuals who are exploring donating their records to AJHS; provides education, consultation, and outreach services; and maintains oversight of all proposals, policies, and workflows to facilitate the transfer of collections to AJHS for long-term stewardship and access. She holds a BA from Barnard College, an MA from New York University, and a Digital Archives Specialist certification.
