International Holocaust Day (27 January 2019), which memorialises millions of victims of Nazi persecution, is especially meaningful for researchers with Jewish ancestry. Even those who believe they lost no relatives in that era may, as they climb their family trees, discover Jewish cousins from Krakow or great-grandparents from Pinsk.

Many, to honour their memories, seek their names and trace their lives.

Nazi extermination methods varied from country to country, even from town to town. So establishing an ancestor’s birthplace and/or Holocaust location will help determine his/her fate. After reviewing family albums, letters, and lore – examination of prewar vital records, which are accessible through local or regional archives, may prove helpful. These may not only verify an ancestor’s whereabouts, but also reveal the names of additional family members – along with their signatures.
