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databases, unpublished manuscripts and private collections, in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
resources@jgsny2006.org 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 resources@jgsny2006.org
