JGSNY - Call for 2006 Conference Papers #germany
The Jewish Genealogical Society is the host society
for the 2006 International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies'
annual conference to be held at the Marriott Marquis here in New York City
from August 13th to 18th.Preparations for this conference have been underway for over a year and we
will be issuing the official call for papers to the entire genealogical
community on September 15th. Before doing so, we are sending the call for
papers to our members to give you an early opportunity to submit proposal(s)
for potential presentations.
Submissions should be made at the Conference website at:
All abstract submissions must be submitted via our on-line abstract module
E-mail submittals will not be accepted.
Presentation categories are listed below:
- Computer Training Workshops
- Eastern and Central European research
- Genetics and DNA Research

- Non-European research (e.g. India, China)
- Rabbinical research
- Sephardic research
- Technology and Internet resources

Just follow the instructions at the website.
The decision to accept a submission will be heavily weighted toward
presentations not given at previous IAJGS Conferences, that provide specific
research methodology and that include specific information for researchers
to replicate the success of the presenter in acquiring information.
Sessions will be one hour and fifteen minutes, with the last 15 minutes
reserved for questions and answers.
*********** Proposal Deadline - December 1, 2005 **********************
