Hello Martin: Remember you are going to Archives II at College Park, MD, to
view EWZ records. You will want to arrive as early as you can since you
will have to complete paperwork to get a researcher's card. Materials
allowed in the microfilm room are restricted so you'll have to lock
everything else in the locker room, which I think is 25 cents so bring some
change. This site provides more logistical information:

Also, it helps to know what region of eastern Europe your relatives were in
since the EWZ is not one massive repository.

   - EWZ-50 covers Soviet Russia (pre-WWII borders includes Ukraine and
   Russian Volhynia) and is indexed on www.odessa3.org
   - EWZ-52 covers Poland (pre-WWII borders, includes Polish Volhynia) and
   - EWZ-51 covers Romania
   - EWZ-53 covers Baltic states (Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania)
   - EWZ-5410 covers Yugoslavia
   - EWZ-5420 covers France
   - EWZ-5430 covers Bulgaria

The articles mentioned at very helpful, from personal experience. The
archives volunteers are there to monitor the room and may not be able to
assist with specific questions.

Read everything you can find about working in the EWZ to maximize your
time. Good luck!
