Jerusalem: Central Archives request

The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem is a remarkable resource for data and historical information about towns of interest and our ancestors.

Director Hadassah Assouline has helped many researchers obtain documents, some from centuries ago.
.
The Archives is now looking for personal or family correspondence from Eastern Europe to relatives in the US, Israel or elsewhere, as these are important sources for historical research preceding World War II, as well as other periods.

If readers have such documents, the archives would like to receive them, either originals or photocopies. If you are willing to share these important family treasures, you may send them directly to Assouline:
