Martin Fischer

Chuck Weinstein, towns director for Ukraine SIG and a moderator of its email
discussion group, will give two presentations at the Sunday, July 16, 2017,
meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois, at Temple Beth-El,
3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook, Ill. "What's New at Ukraine SIG," beginning at
1 p.m., and "Choosing the Right Family Tree Software," beginning at 2:30 p.m.,
are his topics at this special JGSI meeting.

For more information, see or phone 312-666-0100.

Now that Ukraine records are beginning to come online, "What's New at Ukraine
SIG?" will provide a preview of announcements to be made at the Orlando IAJGS
Conference later in July, along with information on how to get involved with
Ukraine SIG. Chuck will discuss ongoing efforts to find more Ukraine SIG town
leaders and build more KehilaLinks pages for Jewish communities of eastern
Ukraine. This talk, which starts at 1 p.m., should be of interest to anyone
with family roots in the Russian Empire portion of Ukraine.

In the second presentation, "Choosing the Right Family Tree Software," which
starts at 2:30 p.m., Chuck will describe the new versions of some of the more
popular family tree software programs and seek to clear up confusion over
combining your computer family tree with online family trees. He will also
help you sort out the options and review popular software for both PCs and
Macs. Features and benefits of each software will be described.

A past president of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island, Chuck
Weinstein was also a co-chair of last year's IAJGS Conference in Seattle. He
is currently writing a book on Holocaust research.
