23 - 23 May 2021 JGASGP Monthly Program with Alex Krakowsky Zoom
Details:

Time:  1:00 check in, chat, and schmooze  Official program starts promptly at 1:30

Speaker: Alex Krakowsky

Topic: Ukrainian archives are notoriously difficult and expensive to deal with, if one can get records from them at all. Alex Krakovsky, a Jewish Ukrainian, is using the freedom of information laws and the court system in Ukraine to force archives to allow him to scan their records and post them on a public website. Alex uses high resolution scanning equipment to scan virtually all records in an archive, posting to a wiki just for Jewish records. He has spent a great deal of time and his own money doing this important work, constantly doing battle with a very difficult government system. He has also received funds donated for purchase of state-of-the-art scanners, which are now in use in most Ukraine archives. He will update us on the current status of records he has available.
