Dr Balint has worked with the Red Cross to find and locate people missing after war, famine, flood etc. to reunite them with family members or to inform families of their ancestor’s journey beyond the paper trail. Dr Balint will explain the research process around finding those ancestors who seem to “disappear off the face of the earth”. She has also conducted extensive research into archives of the International Tracing Service in Germany, where the records of 14 million victims of Nazism are kept and used for finding lost family members from World War II.
