World Memory Project

The World Member Project is a joint effort of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Ancestry.com to create the world's largest online resource online for information about individual victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution. I'm honored to have played a small part in helping to making this happen, and grateful to efforts of my team and many other colleagues at Ancestry.com who contributed to the project. I hope that many people will participate in the project, and that as a result, many more will be able to find information about their loved ones.
