The records below are examples of those available in the Archives of the JDC (American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee).

List of people who were trying to get help from their American family.  Behr Hersh Zakstein was in Borisoglebsk, Russia in 1917 and asking the Joint, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, to help him get in contact with Mr. M. and Dina Zakstein in Worcester, MA.
