Ukraine SIG and the IAJGS conference in Cleveland #ukraine

Janette Silverman

Dear Friends:
Planning is underway for the Ukraine SIG events at the annual IAJGS
conference, this year in Cleveland, OH 28 Jul - 2 Aug 2019. We always
have a SIG lunch and a general meeting, and participate in the Share
Fair. I don't know the day and time for any of these events yet, and
won't know, until the programming committee finishes the hard work of
planning all the sessions.

Right now, I'm asking for suggestions for a speaker for the lunch - if
anyone has a particular topic or speaker they would like addressed,
please email me privately at
Similarly, if there is anything in particular you would like addressed
at the general meeting, I would like your thoughts, also sent to me

In the past several years, at the lunch, we have had Ukraine SIG members
speak about their own travel in Ukraine (we did this in Jerusalem and in
Poland), we have also had outside speakers - Eric Goldman discussed
"Everything is Illuminated" in advance of the film being shown at one o
fthe conferences, Yochai Ben Ghedalya of the Central Archives for the
History of the Jewish People (CAHJP) spoke at another conference.

At the general meeting, we usually discuss several projects that are
underway, how to create a project and fund it, becoming a town leader,
and more.

We will also need volunteers to help at the Share Fair table, so please
keep in mind that I'll be putting a call out for volunteers once I know
when the Share Fair will be.

I'm looking forward to seeing many of you in Ohio.

Next week I'll be sending out a message about upcoming additions to the
JewishGen Database >from Ukraine SIG.

I wish everyone a wonderful 2019
