This wake up call is a gentle reminder to those of you who have not yet
booked for the SIG luncheon, or registered for the conference.
SA SIG Lunch 26 IAJGS Conference 13-18 Aug.2006
The South Africa SIG luncheon at the 26th IAJGS Conference at the Marriott
Hotel, Times Square, New York has been scheduled for Wednesday, August 16th.
The guest speaker is Ann Rabinowitz of Miami Beach, probably one of the
most knowledgeable and dedicated contributors to the SA SIG.
The topic is "Kuposhikers in Africa ". Her story entitled "A Journey to
Africa and Beyond - A Few Vignettes" is appropriate as it encapsulates what
happened to many families who came to SA. Her SA connection is the Choritz
family of Bot Rivier.
Those who want to attend MUST register on the Conference Web site. Paying
at the door will NOT be an option.
Please go to http://www.jgsny2006.org/ for further information about the
conference and registering.
There will also be a South African resources computer workshop: Roy Ogus and myself ( 1.5 hours) with a
general SA SIG business meeting (probably briefly at the lunch)at the conference.
So please reserve your places. The last time we did a luncheon, in Jerusalem, over 45 people attended and we could not take any more.
