Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia World War I Family Story Upload Feature is now Available on the IAJGS Conference Website! #galicia


Hal Bookbinder
 

The theme of the upcoming IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy is the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War I. To
commemorate this event, the Conference is offering registrants (both
those who will attend the conference in Salt Lake City and those who
register to access it LIVE! over the Internet) the chance to share their
Family's World War I era stories and photos. Stories may relate to
military service, the disruption caused by fighting, forced relocation,
emigration, or other topics related to this era.

Now is the time to write your story and gather your pictures. You may
upload your story and related photos using the World War I Story Upload
feature on the Conference website, www.iajgs2014.org . The purpose of
this feature is to allow the Conference Committee to gather all of your
stories and memories into a unique online exhibit and possibly a printed
memory book. We also plan a World War I picture display at the
Conference.

To use the World War I Story Upload Feature you must first register for
the conference. Then, use the Registration Update feature to upload your
story and associated pictures. You will need your registration email and
password to log into the Registration Update feature. If you have
forgotten your password, the Registration Update page has a "Forgot
password" function. We will periodically extract stories to share through
social media (Discussion Forum, Blog, Facebook and Twitter). We
envision cutting off updates as of June 15, 2014, to allow time to create
the online exhibit for the conference.
