Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the
train to your summer home or to take off for the beach, please
look at the Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some
very exciting talks and events planned that morning that you
won't want to miss.
We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than
keeping everyone awake until midnight every night to attend
them, we opted to schedule a full morning of sessions on
Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary,
Greece, Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...
If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep
dark secrets about the criminals in your family's past, or find
other "Jews in the news"...
If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your
research, or conserving your photos and documents...
If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn
more about Shoah victims or survivors...
If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes
to be spelled that way)...
If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became
...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about
Friday's sessions on the Conference web site
One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The
Jewish Chochka and Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi
Guber requests that registrants bring family items, documents,
photos, and ephemera to the conference. He and a panel will
help determine when and >from where the items originated and any
other secrets they may reveal about your family. Please
remember to bring along items for this exciting session.
Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!
