Jeff A.

This will be a Zoom Only meeting and open to everybody, but you must register in advance (see below).

Wednesday, January 19th, 7:00 PM, via Zoom

Topic: New-found JewishGen Ukraine Research Group Records: The Krakovsky Documents

This will be a pre-recorded presentation from Gary Pokrassa and Joel Spector from last summer’s IAJGS conference.  The lecture will describe in depth the translation and indexing project along with information on navigating Krakovsky's wiki page. Also, the utilization of the data and its preservation and availability on JewishGen will be discussed. Critical questions to considered are:

    a) Who is Alex Krakovsky and how did he get involved in his work?

    b) What obstacles is he facing?

    c) How to navigate the thousands of documents on his wiki pages?

    d) What is the JewishGen Ukraine Research Division Project and how does it relate to Krakovsky's work?

    e) How can the data be accessed on JewishGen?

    f) What is the status of the creation of a detailed town index?


Both Gary and Joel will be available after the presentation to provide the latest updates and answer any questions.
