On St. Patrick's Day (March 17th), 2017 (ironically enough), the Nashi Predky Ukrainian Genealogy initiative hosted its first-ever online workshop, based on popular demand from many individuals who are not able to travel to New Jersey for our in-person conferences.
On November 4-5, 2016, the Nashi Predky – Our Ancestors - Family History Group at the Ukrainian Historical and Educational Center of New Jersey held its third annual fall conference: “Research Essentials: Combining the Basics with 21st Century Technology” at the Ukrainian Cultural Center located at 135 Davidson Ave. in Somerset, NJ 08873. Speakers included nationally known experts in Eastern European genealogy.
On March 19, 2016, the Center, the Nashi Predky Ukrainian genealogy initiative, and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum teamed up for a well-attended and very positively received workshop on World War II-era records.
On October 24, 2015, the Ukrainian Historical and Educational Center of NJ presented the annual "Nashi Predky - Our Ancestors" Fall Conference. The 50 attendees came from local New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania areas, but also included individuals who traveled from North Carolina and even California (a new distance record for the "Nashi Predky" series!).
In its April 26 issue, the Ukrainian Weekly (the preeminent English-language Ukrainian-themed newspaper in the US) had a nice write-up about the Center's "Nashi Predky"/"Our Ancestors" Ukrainian genealogy initiative. Thank you Michael Buryk for helping to make it happen (both the initiative and the article)!
