Submit Your Nominees to IAJGS Salutes #general

Lyn Blyden & Les Ungerleider <slu@...>

Dear Genners,

During the annual meeting of the IAJGS Conference in NYC, a new program was
announced to recognize individuals for their contributions to further the
study of Jewish Genealogy.

Please share information with members of your JGS about the newly formed
IAJGS Salutes committee. The goal of the committee is to SALUTE individuals
and non-profit organizations that have completed noteworthy projects and
activities relating to Jewish genealogy! The committee depends on YOU to
submit names and projects.

When submitting your nomination please provide appropriate documentation in
order that the committee can properly evaluate efforts and activities. As
guidelines, please submit information that supports the following criteria:

How did the project or activity increase the availability of resources for
Jewish Genealogy?
How did the project or activity demonstrate creative techniques others can
How did the project or activity increase interest and participation in
Jewish Genealogy?

Please submit nominations to Lyn Blyden at using the subject
line 'IAJGS Salutes Nomination'. Nominations may be submitted at any time
and recognition will be ongoing throughout the year. The committee will
consider nominations within 30 days of receipt and submit a recommendation
to the IAJGS President. Upon the endorsement of the president, the
organization or individual will be recognized.

For further information, please go to and click on the left
hand button that says IAJGS Salutes.

Remember, there is no deadline for nominations for IAJGS Salutes and no
limit to the number of those honored. Thanks to everyone for participating
in honoring those deserving of being Saluted!
