View full schedule and speaker details

The Nashi Predky Family History Group is proud to offer a full day of programming on Saturday, as well as opportunities for one-on-one help and informal learning on Friday evening.

Saturday sessions include talks on:

  • The Genealogical Value of Royal, Government and Private Estate Inventories
  • Fraternal Organizations, 1890-1918
  • Finding Ukrainian, Polish, Belarusian and Russian Records on FamilySearch

and the special presentation of the documentary film "Our Ukrainian American Legacy".

Informal networking has been an extremely important part of Nashi Predky meetings for many of you, since everybody has some knowledge or experience that they can contribute, regardless of their skill level. This year, we are devoting time on Friday evening to facilitate these types interactions, structured like an "unconference" or a "world cafe/knowledge cafe". Friday registrants can also sign up for a limited numbers one-on-one help with the Nashi Predky and UHEC team to get help with research methods, finding ancestral villages, reading documents, or learning more about family heirlooms. There will also be an informal "Advanced Cyrillic Workshop" on reading (shall we say) less-than-perfect penmanship. Real-world examples from the UHEC Archives will illustrate handwriting styles ranging from the not-so-bad to the truly awful.

Participants may register for either Friday, Saturday, or the full conference at reduced pricing. In addition to the presentations, the event will have vendors and cultural display areas. UHEC members receive a discount.
