"Why Would a Jewish Genealogist Return to Ukraine for the Third Time?" -- Ellen Kowitt

Professional genealogist Ellen Kowitt first travelled to Ukraine with her family in 1997 as the leader of a JewishGen program, the Shtetlschleppers. But returning to Ukraine for the third time in 2019 was unexpected, yet resulted in finding significant genealogical treasures and a sense of healing.

Ellen will discuss her adventures over 20 years contrasting similarities and differences regarding ease of travel, collaboration and access.

Director of JewishGen's U.S. Research Division, Ellen Kowitt has served as past president of both the Jewish Genealogical Society of Colorado and JGS Greater Washington (DC). She has served on the international IAJGS board and in 2020, was appointed national vice chair of the DAR's first-ever Jewish Task Force.

A Denver area resident, Ellen has been researching her own family history for 25 years.  Her website is www.EllenKowitt.com.
