I want to thank so many of you for offering to speak at the Ukraine SIG
lunch on Wednesday of the conference. There are so many great trips
happening. We don't have much time for our speakers, eating and
shmoozing, but we will have 3 speakers, 2 will speak on their travels
and one about some of the challenges of archival research in Ukraine.
All three speakers are SIG volunteers. There are still some spaces
available at the lunch, so please remember to sign up. There is a month
left to register for lunches. Once that registration is closed, there
will be no opportunity to purchase a ticket through the conference.

Ukraine who remembered her family.

Hungarian SIGs, and is a Town Leader for multiple towns. She blogs about
her research at . And she also holds

village where her paternal grandfather lived, and where his father is
buried in that cemetery.

to Ukraine right after this conference.

**Anna Royzner** will speak about the challenges of researching in the
archives of eastern Ukraine (the part of Ukraine covered by Ukraine SIG).

Ukraine, and lives there now. She graduated from Zhitomir State
University. Since 1995, she has been a board member of the Dunaevtsy
