From Nancy Siegel firstname.lastname@example.org@21:1/5 to All on Tue Sep 24 14:50:09 2019
Dear JewishGen Community,
I am pleased to announce that long-time JewishGen volunteer, Phyllis
Gold Berenson, has assumed the position of Director of Ukraine
Research. Phyllis has extensive experience researching Jewish family
history in Ukraine, mentoring others, and has successfully acquired
records from a variety of archives, overseen data transcription and
translation projects, and coordinated the photography, transcription
and translation of tombstones in the Mogilev-Podolsky Cemetery.
In addition to her focus on Ukraine research, she has taken an active
role within the Senior Leadership Team, participating in strategic
planning, and drafting legal documents.
Beyond her work for JewishGen.org, she has contributed greatly to the
broader Jewish genealogical community by starting a Facebook group for
those researching the town of Mogilev-Podolsky and co-managing a
regional group on Family Tree DNA.
A lawyer by profession, Phyllis resides in San Francisco and Sonoma, California. She can be reached at pberenson@JewishGen.org.
I thank Phyllis for all her devotion and dedication to JewishGen over
the years, her vision for increasing the quantity and quality of
Ukraine records on JewishGen, and for her role in helping JewishGen
modernize and improve our systems.
