JewishGen German Research Division Coordinator
After being stable for some time our membership list has been adding
new names almost daily recently. I hope that some of our new member /
subscribers learned about GerSIG at the IAJGS Conference and are
enjoying the meeting.
I am unable to attend the Conference this year because of pressing
business obligations but I'm with all attending GerSIG members in
spirit. It was at the 1998 Conference, my first, that GerSIG
was created and that I met many JewishGen email friends in person
for the first time.
Established GerSIG members - please encourage researchers you meet who
have German ancestors to subscribe to our SIG.
New subscribers - Please save the "Welcome / Introduction" letter you
get >from our listserv system when you subscribe. That document
contains much helpful information and you will probably want to refer
back to it often.
Wishing all in Salt Lake City an enjoyable and productive meeting.
John Paul Lowens, Suburban NYC GerSIG Co-Founder / List Moderator
