Ukraine SIG #Ukraine IAJGS Conference: Consultations with Alex & Natalie Dunai in Boston #ukraine


Pamela Weisberger
 

Dear Researchers:

If you are attending the IAJGS Conference in Boston, Gesher Galicia is
offering you the opportunity to have a private consultation with Alex
and Natalie Dunai in exchange for a contribution to Gesher Galicia's
speaker fund.

You can bring your documents for translation and analysis, discuss
plans for shtetl travel, discuss cemetery documentation, get updates
on the different types of records in the archives, or find out more
about your town.

Alex has been guiding researchers in archives and traveling to
villages and shtetls throughout Ukraine for many years and has
probably visited your town more than once! His wife, Natalie Dunai,
is the lead researcher for the Galician Archival Records Project in
the archives in Lviv (both TsDIal and DALO), Ternopil and Ivano
Frankivsk, and in the Stefanyk National Library. In addition to
being a specialist in vital records, she is knowledgeable about
magnate records, tabula registers, business documents, passport
applications and much more. The Dunais can translate >from Russian,
Ukrainian, Polish and Gothic German. Alex has been involved in
cemetery documentation and restoration. If your Ukrainian research
has reached a dead end, they can provide advice and guidance.

The consultations can be scheduled >from Sunday through Tuesday at
times mutually agreeable to all. They will last for 55 minutes for a
minimum $100 donation to Gesher Galicia. (The donation is tax
deductible in the U.S. ) We will try to accommodate your scheduling
preferences, so please consult the conference schedule to provide us
with at least three day and time choices. The schedule is available
here: http://www.iajgs2013.org/program_schedule.cfm

Contact me privately to request a consultation and I will provide more
details including how to donate, how to prepare and what documents to
bring.

Of course, contributions to our speaker and program fund are always
welcomed! This year we plan to video the Gesher Galicia slate of
talks and to provide them to our members online after the conference
since not everyone can attend. Your funding helps us to bring these
gifted speakers and professionals to conferences and regional
meetings, as well as now bringing the ability to view their
presentations remotely to our members.
