Announcing our 2017/5777 Volunteer of the Year! #belarus
At last week's 2017 IAJGS conference, JewishGen was proud to name Dr.
Janette Silverman, coordinator of the JewishGen Ukraine SIG, as the
recipient of our 2017/5777 Volunteer of the Year award.
Over the years, Janette has devoted an enormous amount of time to
JewishGen's important work. In addition to serving as the coordinator
for the JewishGen Ukraine SIG, she serves as a moderator for the
JewishGen Discussion Groups, has previously served on our operations
committee, and is someone who consistently tries to help in any way
that she can. The results of her hard work are readily apparent to
users, and her organizational skills are admired by her many co-
We wish Janette a Mazal Tov on this well-deserved honor, and express
our sincere gratitude for her outstanding contributions and devotion to
JewishGen and the broader Jewish genealogical community.
