The Jewish Genealogical Society of Oregon
you, your family and friends to the
February 22, 2015 Program
1:00PM Congregation Ahavath Achim
3225 Southwest Barbur Boulevard Portland, OR
(Doors will open at 12:30 with time for conversation and sharing.)
Part A: Ron Doctor, Board member of JGSO, will give a tour of the Ukraine SIG databases and other material available on Jewishgen. Remember, contents of these webpages represent a geography that is different than the current boundaries of Ukraine. Something you need to know about your research may be found right here. The offerings of the website and these pages are updated with some frequency. So even if you knew what was there a couple of years ago you may find some surprises now.
Part B: Isn’t it time for all the State of X speeches? We’ll have an update on the State of the JGSO through an interactive program. Find out more about your society and tell us about your role in the society.
One of Dr. Ronald D. Doctor’s many titles is the Ukraine SIG Coordinator Emeritus. He may be the expert on Ukraine Jewish genealogy.
Ron has been doing Jewish genealogy since 1992. He has traced his Varer line back to the 1730s and his Averbakh, Korenfeld and Diokhter lines to the mid-1730s. Ron is President of the Kremenets-District Research Group (KDRG), served as President and then as Membership Chairman of JGSO, and is on the Teaching Committee of the International Institute for Jewish Genealogy (IIJG).
