      Southern California Genealogical Society Seminar Series. This 2011 seminar with Kerry Bartels. This talk demonstrates how genealogists can use the National Archives website to determine what records are in the National Archives. Since most genealogists use less than 1% of the relevant records in the National Archives, this is a valuable skill. Also demonstrated are examples of records with great genealogical value that are little known and little used by genealogists. Sponsor: The National Archives at Riverside.

              This is the improbable story of how–after a separation of three-quarters of a century–an American family found and re-united with their Russian-Jewish relatives, without ever actually having looked for them. After all, it seemed certain that they had perished in the Holocaust or WWII. The story begins in the Bronx, NY, and the happy ending–or better, new beginning– takes place in Nuremberg, Germany, during four magical days in November 2004. The Boston Globe story can be found at: http://schechsplace.tripod.com/content/owritings/familysecret.html The historical background (in Russia and America) can be found at this JewishGen website: http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/kholmich/ 113 minutes
