Please join us on Sunday, October 25, 2015, at 1:30 p.m. to hear Logan
Kleinwaks speak on 'GenealogyIndexer.org: New Sources, New Ways to
Search.'
GenealogyIndexer.org is a free website enabling full-text and
Soundex search of more than 700,000 pages of historical business,
address, and telephone directories >from primarily Eastern and Central
Europe, more than 150 Yizkor books, Polish and Russian military
documents, community and personal histories, Galician secondary school
reports, and more. The data contains millions of personal names, often
listed with towns, street addresses, and occupations and sometimes
with vital dates and patronymics. This huge collection is mostly
comprised of data not searchable elsewhere. This talk will focus on
newly added sources and new ways to search the site.

Logan Kleinwaks, the creator of GenealogyIndexer.org, is the
Coordinator of the JewishGen Danzig/Gdansk SIG. Logan is also the
founder of the Book Wish Foundation, a charity providing books,
reading glasses, solar lighting, and other support for reading for
Darfur refugees and other people in crisis. GenealogyIndexer.org is
the recipient of the IAJGS 2012 Award for Outstanding Contribution to
Jewish Genealogy via the Internet, Print or Electronic Product and one
of Family Tree Magazine's 101 Best Websites for 2015.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at
