JGSLI is extending the invitation to the broader genealogy community. We ask that you register in advance (see below). Please share with your friends!

Sunday, October 24th, 2:00 PM, via Zoom

Speaker: Lara Diamond
Topic: Researching Relatives in Subcarpathia and the Russian Empire

Beyond Vital Records: European borders were fluid, so records for one family were kept in many languages and stored in multiple locations. This talk looks at a case study for a family living in the Subcarpathian area now spanning the Ukraine/Romanian border and which was Hungary, Czechoslovakia & Romania, Hungary again, Soviet Union and Ukraine. Records from this area were kept in multiple languages and are held in many modern countries and archives in those countries. This large family was reconstructed using a variety of methods, including religious records, vital records, census enumerations, Holocaust documents, Yizkor books, DNA and more, bringing the family back to the 1700s and tracing distant cousins across the world.
