Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute - Center for Jewish History in New York City

"The Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute provides an enormous wealth of genealogical resources through the partners' collections and a variety of fact sheets ranging from "how to" guides for the beginner to advanced research guides for the seasoned researcher.

Many resources are available both on-site and online, including some of the most comprehensive databases available, many unique to the Center. Extensive microfilm collections are accessible to researchers, including microfilms on indefinite loan from the Family History Library containing birth, marriage and death records. The Center offers researchers the ability to view microfilm using Scan Pro 2000 digital microfilm readers; these enable patrons to save images as JPGs, PDFs and other image file formats, and also allow for printing. Genealogy librarians are available six days a week to assist patrons with their own family history research."

Geni Curators Pam Karp, Malka Mysels and Erica Howton have been hard at work preparing tutorials on Geni Projects and other tools for use by genealogists at the Center. Videos of presentations by Geni Curators Randy Schoenberg and Adam Brown have also been provided for the Center's use.

Adam will give a one hour presentation at the Center this coming Sunday (June 8th) 2014 at 2 PM on the power of Geni as a vehicle for increasing the Center's online presence and to advance the Center's mission of stimulating interest in Jewish history among the general public.
