Dear Fellow Conference Goers:
This year the Conference is in our "court" - in the ancestral homes for
our many volunteers and supporters. This year, JRI-Poland is a Platinum
Sponsor of the 38th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy.
JRI-Poland will be taking a very active role.
There will be a wide variety of programming for all you Polish Jewish
researchers. So many, in fact, it is hard to point to just a few.
Let's start with JRI-Poland's significant presence at the SHARE Fair
being held on Sunday, August 5 >from 3 to 5 PM. Come and visit our booth
and let a team of JRI-Poland experts answer your questions and guide
JRI-Poland will also have a presence at the Resource Village. The
Resource Village combines a traditional Vendor Exhibit Hall and Resource
Room with genealogy experts, mentors, archivists, local NGOs, and
craftspeople for a one-stop research experience. The Resource Village
will be open >from 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Wednesday. JRI-Poland
will be at the Village all three days >from 10 am to 3 pm. Again, come
join us and schmooze a little. If your issue relates to Poland or
Galicia, we are here to help.
If you are a JRI-Poland volunteer or a seasoned researcher, we need
your help to cover the JRI-Poland booth at the Resource Village. Please
volunteer for an hour or two during the times our booth will be open.
This is a good way to network and meet new people. If you can spare an
hour or two or have a question about volunteering, contact me at
See you all soon.
JRI-Poland Conference Coordinator
