The JDC Archives (American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee)has entered into a partnership with the International Tracing Service (ITS). The agreement enables the JDC Archives to complement in a digital environment wartime records which will assist in search efforts for missing relatives. The first group of digital files are the 30,000 Emigration Service Cards from the Paris Office of the JDC. The information will be indexed and added to the JDCs Names Index, which currently has over 100,000 cards from other JDC offices.
