Learn about genealogical resource gems at the Holocaust Memorial Center with librarian Feige Weiss, at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Michigan, on Sunday, February 21.
The meeting begins at 11am at the Holocaust Memorial Center, in Farmington Hills. The full name of the institution is the Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus (HMCZFC), and the JGSMichigan library is house there as well.
Feiga Weiss is the head librarian and began working there the second day it opened 25 years ago – when it was located next to the JCC in West Bloomfield.
Before coming to Michigan, Weiss worked for many years at the Library of Congress and was the Hebraic Section’s Senior Reference Librarian.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the HMC Library – and to utilize its resources after the meeting.
Fee: Members, free; others, $5. The HMCZFC is at 28123 Orchard Lake Road. Hours are Sunday-Thursday 9.30am-3.30pm and Friday 9.30am-12.30pm.
