The JDC Archives Names Index as a Window to JDC’s History by Jeffrey Edelstein
Since the launch of the JDC Archives website a decade ago, the Names Index has consistently been the most popular and heavily used feature of the site. In this webinar, Jeff Edelstein will discuss the content of the documents that have been included in the database as a reflection of the focus of JDC’s activity over the course of its history, from the creation of the Transmission Bureau to enable Jews in North America to send money to relatives in Palestine and Europe during World War I through the emergency measures of the Nazi era and postwar care for survivors and emigration assistance and, later, the Aliyah to Israel of Jews throughout the Middle East. Although not intended as a training workshop, the presentation will also include examples of how to search for names via the Names API and the collections database.
