FEEFHS - Name and Focus
Under the direction of Thom Edlund, President, FEEFHS changed its name to the Foundation for East European Family History Studies in 2014. 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.
Thom Edlund, President of FEEFHS, delivers the keynote address at the 20th Annual Conference Closing Banquet, August 2013.
Under Edlund's direction, FEEFHS recently expanded the board, as well as the the role of board members in preparing for the future of FEEFHS in providing services to Eastern European genealogical researchers.
Current board members include: Thom Edlund, president; Dave Obee, past-president; Milan Pohontsch, secretary; Walt Knepper, treasurer; Joe Everett, Joanne Sher, and Kahlile Mehr, who recently returned from serving an LDS mission in Ukraine.
