PROGRAM
“The GENEALOGICAL INDEXER—A FULL-TEXT SEARCH ENGINE”

SPEAKER
Logan Kleinwaks

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Kleinwaks, one of Jewish genealogy's brilliant young stars, will discuss his newly updated Genealogy Indexer website, a fully searchable tool for text databases from various printed sources, such as historical city directories, Yiskor books (memorial books of communities) and more. Over 70,000 Yiskor book pages are included. When all the Yiskor books are digitized, the total will be a quarter-million pages.

A hobbyist genealogist, with a research background in physics and mathematics, his other genealogical interests include the photographic documentation of Jewish cemeteries, improving Internet access to genealogical information, and privacy.
