FEEFHS Announces Change in Name and Focus
Thom Edlund, President, recently announced that FEEFHS has changed its name to the Foundation for East European Family History Studies. Formerly called the Federation of East European Family History Societies, FEEFHS was organized in 1992 as an umbrella organization for many organizations that focused their research efforts on areas of East Europe and Transcaucasia. The Federation provided a Web portal and published a journal distributed to members. As technology evolved and member societies grew, these services became less relevant, and FEEFHS discontinued the journal and membership fees in 2009.
20th Annual Conference Highlights
Thom Edlund, President of FEEFHS, delivers the keynote address at the 20th Annual Conference Closing Banquet, August 2013.
The 2013 workshop hosted individuals from 24 states and two Canadian provinces – some who have attended as many as five, nine, eleven, even twenty years, as well as many who were attending for their first time.
The program opened with a networking reception, featuring Eastern European hors'doevres, and wrapped up with a closing banquet and keynote address, door prizes, awards, and the recognition of John Alleman, one of FEEFHS original founders.
FEEFHS was founded in 1992 as the Federation of East European Family History Societies to promote family research in eastern and central Europe. It provides a forum for individuals and organizations focused on a single country or group of people to exchange information and be updated on developments in the field.
