On October 18, 2020, at 1:30 pm, genealogist Joel Spector will virtually present “The Krakovsky Documents: JewishGen's Ukraine Research Division Project: Transliteration, Preservation, and Addition of the Data to JewishGen For Genealogical Researchers" via webinar.

Alex Krakovsky, a Ukrainian Jew, has been scanning metrical and census records found in long-closed Ukrainian archives. He has placed the indexes, in Cyrillic, on a webpage for easy access. The current Metrical Records Project’s purpose is to transliterate and make the data available on JewishGen for researchers.

A Past President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Philadelphia, he has also been chairperson of its Russian Special Interest Group. Joel is a former Secretary of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and now serves as its Archivist. Currently, he is a member of the JewishGen Ukraine Research Division and serves as its Director of Metrical Records Projects.

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Connecticut welcomes everyone interested in Jewish genealogy to our webinar presentation.
