 Join us for a presentation of truly memorable stories from

the case files that highlight what this incredible database

and website might do for your own research. For 25 years, JRI-Poland has served as

the preferred finding aid for the Jewish records survived in the archives of Poland

today. This vast collection of 6.2 million records from over 550 towns includes

information about towns and families from Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania,

Germany and the former territories of Galicia and Prussia. Through understanding

the contents of the database and how to improve your search results to exploring

preserved Holocaust-related records, this lecture will focus on success that comes out

of genealogical search.

Robinn Magid is the recipient of the IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award. She is

the project manager of the JRI-Poland “NextGen Project”. Robinn is a frequent

speaker and writer on Jewish genealogy topics. Robinn is the Lublin Area Projects

Coordinator, responsible for coordinating the indexing of Jewish vital records for

approximately 100 towns which resulted in the recognition and medal by the mayor

and cultural identity of 450,000 people on Lublinʼs 700th birthday in 2017.
