Dear Friends,=20

The 33rd IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy will be =
held in Boston, Mass. Aug 4-9, 2013. In order to ensure that there will =
be programs of interest to all of us who are researching families >from =
greater Hungary, H-SIG is offering to provide assistance to speakers, =
especially >from abroad, who might not otherwise be able to attend the =
conference. We will, of course, also be holding our annual business =
meeting and are planning a luncheon as well.

Please contact me off-list with your specific proposals for speakers and =
topics including the luncheon program. We will also need volunteers to =
help staff an H-SIG table at the SIG Fair on Sunday, Aug. 4. In order =
to be eligible for receiving financial support >from the conference and =
from H-SIG, speakers are expected to conduct at least two sessions and =
be available to provide one-on-one help with translation or research =
during the conference. The deadline for submitting proposals for =
conference presentations is January 6, 2013. More information about =
submitting conference proposals is available at =
http://www.iajgs2013.org/call_for_papers.cfm All presentations and =
sessions must be approved by the conference. H-SIG will consider =
providing financial support to speakers whose proposals are accepted =
regardless of whether they are receiving assistance >from the conference.=20=

Since many of us were not able to attend the conference in Paris last =
summer, I am especially looking forward to seeing old friends and =
meeting new H-SIGrs in Boston next August. =20

Best wishes for 2013 to all,

Vivian Kahn, Oakland, California
Hungarian SIG Coordinator
