Using JewishGen funds for IAJGS conference #austria-czech
E. Randol Schoenberg
JewishGen has agreed to allow us to use some of the funds that you all have
donated and earmarked for the SIG to help pay for two speakers at the 2007
IAJGS conference in Salt Lake City. SIG member and IAJGS president
Anne Lee is coordinating the invitations to two potential speakers >from
Austria. Our plan is to alternate and concentrate on Austria in 2007 and
the Czech Republic in 2008, and so on. I have heard >from others who are
also planning lectures at the conference. It should be a good one.
Now would be a great time for all of you to make year-end donations to
JewishGen and the SIG. It is quite easy to do if you follow the link to
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/. I would recommend making at
least half of your donation to the JewishGen general fund. This pays for
all of the resources that JewishGen provides us, which are quite expensive.
Funds earmarked for the SIG will be used for special projects and events.
Thanks again to all of you who contribute to JewishGen. Your donations
make everyone's genealogical work possible.
