1Title:  Katz Family Papers and Photographs     
 Creator:  Katz Family 
 Dates:  1900-1992 
 Abstract:  The Katz family began emigrating to the Cleveland area in the 1880s from their home of Podzelva, Lithuania (then part of the Russian Empire). The Katzes were very active in the Cleveland Jewish community. Aaron Katz and his son Solomon David prepared a "booklet of remembrance" (a history of their family) in 1905. This "booklet", a large ledger with writing in Biblical Hebrew by Cleveland area scribe Yaacov Landy, was updated with the names of family members through 1913. A composite photograph of individual portraits of over one hundred family members (not part of the ledger) was included in "An American Story", the core exhibit of the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, opened in 2005. The collection includes a photocopy of this photograph and a guide to the names of those pictured. The collection consists of the certificate of naturalization of Sam Katz, the Family History, an unusually extensive genealogy, photographs, and a supplement to and translation of the family history.

 Creator:  Greater Cleveland Ethnographic Museum 
 Dates:  1971-1990 
 Abstract:  The Greater Cleveland Ethnographic Museum was founded in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1975 to prepare exhibits for the American Revolution Bicentennial celebration in Cleveland. The exhibits were to depict contributions from Cleveland's ethnic groups to the multicultural society of the area. Following the 1976 Bicentennial celebration, the museum established a permanent office and exhibit gallery in the Old Arcade in downtown Cleveland. Although the museum closed in 1981, it was able to document the experiences of immigrants through oral histories, photographs, and other collected material. The collection consists of audio recordings, video recordings, interview transcripts, ledgers, financial documents, membership lists, board meeting minutes, correspondence, presentation materials, notes, catalog cards, exhibit materials, and museum holdings.
