Programs: The HIAS Location Service was established early in the twentieth century to help emigres re-establish contact with family and friends with whom they had lost touch during the years of massive Jewish migration. The HIAS Location Service faced its greatest challenge after World War II, when it helped thousands of displaced persons contact their U.S. relatives.
Today, HIAS continues to receive many requests from people around the world who are trying to locate their relatives and friends. Additional inquiries come from those who are engaged in genealogical research and wish to learn about the origins and experiences of their ancestors who immigrated to this country early in the last century.
