Finding Your Jewish Documents in the Ukrainian Archives
Speaker: Alex Krakovsky
Sunday, January 9th- 1 pm Pacific Time Zone/4 pm Eastern
Free to Members, $5.00 to Guests
If you have Ukrainian ancestry, this presentation and explanation of obtaining documents is a must. Alex Krakovsky will share his database as a research tool and a method to finding and understanding scanned archival images. He will discuss his work in the Ukrainian archives.
Alex was born in Kyiv in 1982. He graduated from Kyiv Polytechnic Institute in 2005. Alex Krakovsky is one of the most influential figures in modern Jewish genealogy. Most notable is his goal to digitize and publish online all of the Jewish records in Ukraine. He has spent years in Ukrainian archives finding previously unknown Jewish list made available by taking the government to court using the Freedom information act. He has won many lawsuits with Ukrainian archives to make records open and available to everyone.
