An opportunity to explore an archive covering 98 years of the East Midwood Jewish Center, a prominent congregation which is listed  on the National & New York State Registers of Historic Places.  The volunteer would review a large file of requests for information about an ancestor and consult the many files of names of members.  There are at least 30 ways to find names in the EMJC Archives.  All the inquiries were answered when they were received, but before the EMJC Archive were completed so I could not do a thorough search for the names of past members.  Now that the Archives are complete, it would be useful to go back and try to answer all the inquiries. As we are getting ready to celebrate our 100th anniversary, it is important to reach out to as many descendants of past members as possible.
