The Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute provides access to genealogical resources of the Center for Jewish History’s five partner collections, a large reference collection, online databases, and research guides. The partners’ archives comprise the world’s most comprehensive Jewish collection outside of Israel (more than 500,000 volumes). These include family and community histories, Landsmanshaftn collections, newsletters of Jewish genealogical societies, memoirs, Jewish Data (database), historic newspapers (including New York Times and Washington Post), American Jewish Newspapers, Pinkas Hakehillot and other Holocaust reference works, photographs, personal, communal, cultural, political and professional organization records. A large part of their genealogy resources are unique to the Center. Their microfilm collections include Jewish records from Eastern and Central Europe, the German Minority Census of 1938, Philadelphia HIAS records, Russian Consular records and indexes, and New York City birth and death record indexes.[1]
