Sacramento: Ukraine scrapbook, March 15

Allan Dolgow will describe his recent roots trip to Ukraine at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento (California).

The program - "Ukraine Scrapbook -- A Journey That Took 105 Years to Plan and Finally Take" - begins at 10am, Sunday, March 15, at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright St. Sacramento.

In August 2008, Dolgow visited Kiev, Novograd Volinsky, Kamenny Brod and Polonne.

Using data bases, networking and applying a different approach, he located an 87-year-old second cousin - her grandfather and his were brothers - living in Polonne; she was a Russian Army field hospital surgeon during WW II.

The meeting with the cousin and other family members added branches to Dolgow's family tree, and he discovered relatives in Israel, France, Russia, India, and the United States.

Everyone is welcome to attend and to utilize the group's library collection. For more details, see the JGSS link above.
