"Ukrainian and Polish Archival Resources" with Kahlile Mehr
Sunday January 8 from 10:00 am until noon (Ukraine) and from noon until 2:00 pm
Congregation Har Hashem, 3950 Baseline Road, Boulder, CO
Open to all
This double session is a terrific opportunity for any of you who have interest in
either Ukraine or Poland archival resources. Among other things, it will cover
how you can understand the archives and the archival situation in Ukraine and
Poland, collections content, how to get there, and general research procedures.
This is based on two decades of experience by our presenter, Kahlile Mehr.
Kahlile Bliss Mehr, MA, MLS, AG, has over thirty years of experience working with
the LDS Family History Library. Currently he is the manager of the Slavic
Collection. He has visited archives throughout Eastern Europe. He has published
twenty-three articles and a book on family and local history topics. He was the
primary author for "Tracing your Jewish Ancestors From the United States to Europe,
1850-1930" that can be downloaded from the FamilySearch Website. He serves on the
boards of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies and the
Federation of East European Family History Societies.
Each session is independent of the other. Come to either one or come to both. If
you plan on staying for both sessions, we suggest that you bring a bag lunch (note:
must be dairy or vegetarian) with you.
