A week from Sunday, our next Genealogy mtg.
- Ukraine Scrapbook -- A Journey That Took 105 Years to Plan and Finally
March 15, 2009, 10 a.m.
Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento
Member Allan Dolgow’s upcoming presentation is more than his trip to
the Ukraine; it is his genealogical journey. When Allan started it was
his journey into the past, but what resulted was a journey into the
present. It’s a story of how he found relatives living in the
Ukraine, Russia, Israel, Canada, India and the United States, and how
it culminated in his visit to a cousin in the Ukraine.
Last August, Allan traveled to Kiev, Novograd Volinsky, Kamenny Brod
and Polonne. Using data bases, networking and applying an approach that
is not taught, Allan was able to locate an 87-year-old second cousin
[her grandfather and his were brothers] living in Polonne. This cousin
turned out to have an interesting background; she had worked as a
surgeon at a field hospital in the Russian Army during WW II. Meeting
her and her granddaughters and grandniece has added numerous branches
to Allan’s family tree; he found relatives living in Israel, France,
Russia, India, and even in the United States.
Come and learn more about Allan Dolgow’s Ukraine trip at 10 a.m.,
Sunday, March 15, at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright
Street, Sacramento. You might also want to make time to browse our
