ASPJ Genealogy Open Days 2023

April 2, 2023

Four years after the ASPJ’s first such event in Melbourne, this time, in 2023, our ASPJ Genealogy Open Days were held in both Sydney (28th March at the Sydney Jewish Museum) and Melbourne (1st April at the new Melbourne Holocaust Museum). Again, this year, our special guest was, Polish genealogist and historian, Michał Majewski.

Having worked for the Association of the Jewish Historical Institute in Poland and with the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, at both events, Michał provided the audiences with valuable information about resources available to further their own family’s genealogical history.

Assistant State Manager of the National Archives of Australia in Victoria, Patrick Ferry, also gave a special presentation about the “Sponsoring the Survivors” Project.
