Working With JRI-Poland’s New Website


Program offered by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Long Island

Wednesday March 15, 2023

7:00 PM – 9:00 PM – ZOOM

In April 2022, JRI-Poland converted over to a brand new, state-of-the-art website with a new look and feel, and has introduced bold new features that greatly enhance the user experience. The new website offers terrific advantages for the user who learns how to use it. Come along for a 40 minute tour of the JRI-Poland website replete with tips and hints for how to get right to what you want to know. This presentation will include a questions-and-answer session.

Robinn Magid is the Assistant Director of JRI-Poland.org and a recent recipient of the IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2020, Robinn became the project manager of the JRI-Poland “NextGen Project” to redesign the JRI-Poland website, database and search engine. She is a frequent speaker and writer on Jewish genealogy topics. Robinn’s genealogical work resulted in her being recognized by the City of Lublin, Poland – her grandmother’s hometown – with a medal in 2017 from the mayor for inspiring the future and cultural identity of that city of 340,000 people on Lublin’s 700th birthday. Robinn has spoken at many IAJGS conferences on behalf of JRI-Poland and has served as the chair of two groundbreaking conferences: IAJGS 2018 Warsaw, Poland conference, and the IAJGS 2020 Virtual Conference on Jewish Genealogy. She is a member of the San Francisco – Bay Area JGS and has spoken to her group and to other societies. Robinn and her husband have raised four wonderful kids and recently became grandparents.
