JGS Toronto Ukraine SIG

February 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Ukraine Special Interest Group (SIG) Meeting

Thursday, February 28, 2019 from 7:30 pm to 9:15 pm

Family History Centre
24 Ferrand Drive, Toronto


REVISED TOPIC:  Emigration stories of our families from Ukraine.


I am looking for short presentations relating to the stories, evidence, and research materials you have collected about your family’s emigration from Ukraine. 


Next steps: Please let me know by next Monday (February 25) if you wish to present your family’s emigration story at the next meeting. Your presentation should take 5 to 10 minutes, and you are free to use a short slide show (bring it on a memory stick), a handout, or simply speak about what you have learned. Please focus on tools and approaches that you have used while doing research about your family’s emigration to Canada (or other countries) from Ukraine.  I will summarize our collective findings at the end of the meeting.


We will also have a short presentation by Jerry Scherer about how to become a power user of Google Translate in your research. It is very good and I’m sure we’ll all benefit from it.


Best wishes, and apologies for the confusion about our next meeting.

For information, contact Marla Waltman:  [email protected]

Please remember that no outside foods or drinks are to be brought into the Family History Centre.

Only JGS Toronto members may attend Special Interest Group meetings.  Non-members may attend one trial SIG meeting.

See you on the 28th!
