Rose Lerer Cohen, a professional genealogist and probate researcher, writer and lecturer from Israel, will speak. She will explain how to find relatives in Israel using resources of the Israel State Archives, Central Zionist Archives and other smaller archives in Israel as well as databases and whether language is indeed a barrier. She will describe the major databases and depositories of Holocaust materials, including Yad Vashem in Israel, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and the International Tracing Service in Bad Arolsen, Germany. As part of her presentation, she will also focus on search strategies and integrating resources within the framework of genealogy and history.
