1. SA SIG Lunch 26 IAJGS Conference 13-18 Aug.2006
The South Africa SIG luncheon at the 26th IAJGS Conference at the Marriott
Hotel, Times Square, New York has been scheduled for Wednesday, August 16th.
The guest speaker is Ann Rabinowitz of Miami Beach. , probably one of the
most knowledgeable and dedicated contributors to the SA SIG.
The topic is "Kuposhikers in Africa ". Her story entitled "A Journey to
Africa and Beyond - A Few Vignettes" is appropriate as it encapsulates what
happened to many families who came to SA. Her SA connection is the Choritz
family of Bot Rivier.
Those who want to attend *must* register on the Conference Web site. Paying
at the door will *not* be an option.

There will also be several SA related lectures, a computer workshop and a
general SA SIG meeting at the conference
