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.
