Ukraine SIG meetings at the IAJGS Conference #ukraine

Ronald D. Doctor

A couple of weeks ago, Warren Blatt, Managing Director of JewishGen,
asked me to serve as Coordinator of Ukraine SIG. After much thought, I
accepted. Since then, a small group of us have been busy developing a
new Research Plan for the SIG. We will discuss the Plan and
reorganization of the SIG at the Ukraine SIG General Meeting at the
IAJGS Conference in Washington D.C. The SIG General meeting is on 15
August, 2:15 to 3:30 pm, Room Independence I.

Here is a schedule of Ukraine related meetings at the Conference.

* SIG and BoF Fair, Sunday, 14 August, 2:00 to 5:00 pm. We don't have
a SIG table. Instead, Ron Doctor will be at the Kremenets table.

Please note that the Ukraine SIG Board Meeting is an OPEN meeting. If
you are interested in helping to revitalize the SIG, please try to
attend the Board meeting. Among other things, we will discuss ways to
re-structure the SIG to improve services to those researching their
Jewish ancestors in Ukraine. I am looking forward to discussions with
you, collectively and individually, at the Conference. In the
meantime, if you have any questions or suggestions, please write to me
directly, or post a message on the Ukraine SIG Discussion List.
