This presentation will relate some truly memorable stories from its case files highlighting what this incredible database and website might do for your own research. For 25 years, JRI-Poland has served as the preferred finding aid for the Jewish records that survive in the archives of Poland today. This vast collection of 5.8 million records includes information about towns and families from Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, Germany and the former territories of Galicia and Prussia.

Robinn Magid is a longtime board member of and a frequent speaker and writer on Jewish genealogy topics. She is on the NextGen team: working on the new and improved JRI-Poland website. As the Lublin Area Projects Coordinator, she is responsible for coordinating the indexing of Jewish vital records for 103 towns. Robinn’s genealogical work resulted in her being recognized by the City of Lublin, Poland – her grandmother’s hometown – with a medal from the mayor for inspiring the future and cultural identity of that city of 450,000 people upon Lublin’s 700th birthday. A long-time member of the San Francisco Bay Area - JGS, Robinn has spoken up and down the Pacific Coast on Jewish Genealogy topics and many IAJGS conferences on behalf of JRI-Poland.
