    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.
