Relevance and scope:
The family files are of unique historical value and of high relevance for research on the history and background of Palestine refugees. Although the information each file contains may be fragmentary, the scope is comprehensive. A project should be launched to preserve the family files archives and to facilitate historical research based on this material.

At present, access to the family files is restrained. Preservation of the material and proper centralized storing would facilitate access. In that case standardized procedures and forms for applications for research permissions should be introduced.
