The Jewish Genealogical Society of NYC, Inc., will host the 26th Annual
Conference on Jewish Genealogy in New York City, August 13 - 18, 2006. A
highlight of the Conference will be the Resource Room located at the
Conference hotel. In addition to providing the Conference attendees with an
"on-site" basic research library, the Resource Room will showcase research
projects >from Jewish genealogical organizations and societies, their
members, and independent researchers throughout the world. The Resource
Room Committee is requesting contributions of genealogical materials, which
would be useful and informative to the Conference attendees, especially
those that are unique or unusual, including works-in-progress and
pre-release databases. In particular, the Committee is requesting printed
or computerized copies of indexes, databases, unpublished manuscripts and
private collections, in addition to commercially published books and maps.
All hard-copy materials loaned to the Resource Room should be bound (i.e.
no loose papers) and will be returned immediately after the Conference has
ended. Material in electronic form and computer databases should be
compatible with Microsoft Office programs. If you have materials to
contribute to the Resource Room, please send a description of those items
to the Committee at email@example.com or the address below as soon as
convenient so we can proceed with our planning. The Resource Room Committee
will contact all contributors regarding arrangements to obtain the
materials prior to the Conference and to return them afterwards. Be assured
that appropriate security measures will be taken to protect all loaned
resources, however please provide copies of your material, not the originals.
The Resource Room will also host the volunteer translators. If you can
spend a few hours during the Conference to help attendees translate their
materials, please let us know which languages you can translate, and we
will set up a schedule convenient to you.
Any further inquiries should be addressed to the Resource Room Committee at
