Leigh DworkinChairman, Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain
Leigh Dworkin is an IT Consultant and currently works for Samsung Electronics on their security software for smartphones and tablets. In his spare time, he acts as the webmaster for a number of charities he supports and has performed this task for the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain (JGSGB).
Leigh has been Chairman of the JGSGB since May 2016, having joined Council in 2014 and been Vice-Chairman since 2015. He Chairs the Preservation of Records subcommittee, and advises on matters to do with the website, social networking and other technical items. He has spoken frequently at the Chilterns Regional Group and the Eastern European Special Interest Group and at both the JGSGB London and Manchester conferences.
He is a passionate amateur genealogist and has been working on his own family tree for about 35 years. Genealogically speaking, he considers himself to be 5/8ths Polish, ¼ Lithuanian and 1/8th Belarusian, judging by his great-grandparents’ nationalities, which is far more interesting and exotic than being just an Essex lad.
