MODERATOR NOTE: The following is posted by request >from our hosts at JewishGen:
Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the train to
your summer home or to take off for the beach, please look at the Conference's
Friday morning schedule. We have some very exciting talks and
events planned that morning that you won't want to miss.
We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than keeping
everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we opted to
schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m.
to 12:15 p.m.
If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary, Greece,
Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...
If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark secrets
about the criminals in your family's past, or find other "Jews in the news"...
If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research, or
conserving your photos and documents...
If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more about Shoah
victims or survivors...
If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be spelled
If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became "suddenly Jewish"...
...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about Friday's
sessions on the Conference web site
One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The Jewish Chochka and
Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi Guber requests that registrants
bring family items, documents, photos, and ephemera to the conference.
He and a panel will help determine when and >from where the items originated and
any other secrets they may reveal about your family. Please remember to
bring along items for this exciting session.
Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!
EARLY REGISTRATION MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MAY 15, 2006 !!!
