Dear Belarus SIG members:
Dave Fox, the Founder and former Coordinator of the Belarus SIG, will be
in Los Angeles on Sunday, October 23rd, and has made time available to
meet with the JGS Los Angeles in an informal gathering. This is an exciting
opportunity to learn first hand about the ongoing projects of the Belarus SIG.
Of course we will also be able to meet each other and explore possibilities
for a local face-too-face Belarus interest group. Our plan is for this
ongoing local group to explore research projects and have more experienced
Belarus researchers mentor those with less experience. In the future,
we will be organizing other interest groups.
The first step is to determine how many people are interested and able to
attend the Belarus interest group meeting on Sunday afternoon, October 23rd -
and based on that, we can arrange for a meeting place. We will be gathering
information >from people in the Los Angeles area and summarizing it to share
with each other at the meeting.
You do not have to be a member of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Los Angeles in order to participate in this meeting, but you are
invited to join.
Please respond to David Hoffman, at DBH12345@aol.com.
Member, Board of Directors, JGSLA
