Just over a month >from now the annual IAJGS Conference wil bring Jewish
Genealogists >from around the world to New York. Based on past experience,
we can expect a very large turnout at this meeting.
We were not able to conduct GerSIG business meetings at the last two
Conferences but the GerSIG leadership hopes to take advantage of a
well-attended New York meeting to gather and share input >from our members.
We hope that many of you will be in New York and attend our Luncheon and also
our business meeting earlier on Monday.
Those of you who can't attend the Conference are invited to send your
comments, suggestions, and other input for possible inclusion during our meetings.
At these meetings we recognize outstanding contributions of various
kinds by our members.
We also discuss new research project ideas, ideas for improving our
Discussion Group and website as well as other aspects of our group.
This year we hope to improve our ability to conduct meaningful research
projects and post the resultant data at our website or at JewishGen.
To this end we will seek a well-qualified GerSIG member who is willing
and able to serve as a GerSIG group Coordinator with the title:
Director of GerSIG Research Projects.
I'm looking forward to seeing many of you at our meetings in August.
If you can't attend in person we will welcome your participation via Email to:
John Paul Lowens, NYC, GerSIG Coordinator and Moderator "MOD1"
