Last week I was in Las Vegas at the National Genealogical Society Annual Conference. While there we assist with searches, share tips about using Ancestry, and talk to many, many researchers. In one such conversation with Michael Brenner, a past President of the Southern Nevada Jewish Genealogical Society, I asked him if he was familiar with the World Memory Project and led him to a computer to show him all of the live databases that are part of the project. He was excited when he learned that we had a Krakow database – yes, there were others but, “Show me Krakow.” We searched for Brenners and I sat in awe listening as he told me that one after the other of these records were for his relatives. Wow!
Thank you for the contributions you make that allow researchers to have the experience of reconnecting with their relatives.
